Norfolk Police have thanked residents and volunteers across the coast tonight as the floods passed without any major incident.
As high tide passed at around 9.30pm, the likelihood of significant flooding in Great Yarmouth was so finely balanced that the Environment Agency was unable to predict how severe the outcome would be; however, as the critical time came and went no substantial flooding occurred in the town.
In North Norfolk however a number of homes are without power in Walcott; however, it is not clear how many have been affected by flooding. The evacuation centre has now been moved from The Lighthouse to Stalham High School.
There is also flooding on some coastal roads in that area which has resulted in road closures and beach debris has been washed up onto the highway.
In Caister, the lifeboat station has been damaged but early reports suggest there have been no significant incidents in the Hemsby area which is vulnerable to coastal erosion.
Thousands of residents were advised to evacuate today which included over 5000 homes in the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston areas, 15 properties in Salthouse, and 56 in Walcott.
