Coastal roads were closed – and are likely to be again for the 8.45 am high tide on Monday – but several exposed properties were extensively damaged by the force of the water and flooding. They include the Keeper’s Cottage at Cobière, the Pizza Quarter at Millard’s Corner and businesses at Gorey.
Issusing another weather warning for Monday, John Searson, a senior forecaster at the Jersey Met Office, said: ‘Tides tomorrow are likely to be high enough to cause further flooding and roads to be closed on the south-coast. Islanders should either travel early or take a different route if they can’t avoid the rush hour.’
The Met Office issued a red warning, the highest possible alert, for the high tides on Saturday morning, Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
