Shoreham Airport in West Sussex has been partly flooded, but the Environment Agency is sending a temporary flood barrier to protect it from today's high tide:
Airport open to departing aircraft only. Some areas of the airport site still affected by floodwater but main runway is open. #flood
Some parts of the UK are have seen the worst storm surge in 60 years, but we are not out of the danger yet.
A combination of factors are combining to make this storm surge particularly powerful.
Water levels around the UK could be higher than in the storm surge of 1953, but thanks to flood defences the impact is likely to be smaller.
