2014-01 - 4


This photograph was taken on 4 January 2014 one day after the storm conditions seen in the first three photographs in this series.  The sea wall has been destroyed and washed down onto the shore.  The photo was taken at high water when the predicted tidal water height was only 3 cm lower than the predicted height on the previous day.  The exceptionally high water on 3 January was caused by the coincident timing of the low atmospheric pressure and the severe gale blowing from the south off the Irish Sea and up the length of Morecambe Bay.  As can be seen from the sea conditions, the gale has abated by 4 January.
