Stormy weather!

There’s wild weather on the way for Portsmouth on Friday (18 February 2022).

As always, when alerted to severe weather conditions, Portsmouth City Council will be ensuring the flood gates are closed at Old Portsmouth and putting flood boards in place at the Pyramids centre in Southsea.

Guy Mason, Portsmouth City Council’s project director for the Southsea Coastal Scheme, said:  “There’s an amber warning out for Portsmouth on Friday so we’re preparing for some serious weather, with very strong gale force winds and large waves along the Southsea seafront.

“As always, when alerted to severe weather conditions, we will be ensuring the flood gates are closed at Old Portsmouth and we will be putting flood boards in place at the Pyramids centre in Southsea. Colas will be closing the seafront road gates. We will also be monitoring the seafront for possible damage.

“These kind of conditions are a reminder to all Portsmouth residents of the importance of the work of the Southsea Coastal Scheme in upgrading our sea defences for the years to come.”
