It’s a wet and miserable start to the week.
With Storm Brendan due to hit Cork early tomorrow morning and a Status Orange wind alert in place until 3pm Monday afternoon, Cork City Council has advised motorists of a further issue; spring tides.
A period of high astronomical spring tides this Monday, January 13th and Tuesday, January 14th, 2020 could see parts of the city submerged in water.
“There is a risk that some roads and parking areas along low lying quays in the city centre may suffer localised flooding during high tides; i.e. South Terrace, Morrison’s Quay, Fr Matthew Quay, Trinity Bridge, Union Quay, Sharman Crawford Street, Wandesford Quay, Frenche’s Quay, Crosses Green, Lavitt’s Quay, Kyrl’s Quay.” says Cork City Council.
High tide times of note are Monday at 7.14am and Tuesday at 8.01am.
Might be a good day to take the bus if it’s an option.
