David Cameron has said his thoughts are with everyone affected by the floods after one of the worst tidal surges in 60 years devastated parts of the east coast of Britain.
My thoughts are with everyone affected by the floods - I know the emergency services are doing a great job helping out.
Communities are beginning to count the cost of the damage after thousands were finally allowed to return to their homes yesterday.
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.
