Severe Weather Warning

Edinburgh & the Lothians are bright red on the Met Office Weather Warning Map

The sea is huge this afternnon - high tide has past but the waves are still rolling right up to the wall and over it in some places. Near the baths a wave has crossed the Prom via a wee flight of steps judging by the seaweed and sand against the coping of the tenement. It's a bit breezy for a stroll today!!!

Anyone get any photos? I went down to try to get some video but I had missed the best/worst of it.

Someone put this up a few weeks ago:

It would be even more impressive if they had just held the camera steady instead of waving it around. And left the girl in the foreground as, erm, a reference point.

I thought about it but I doubt I could have kept the camera steady (or myself upright) enough in the wind - and the bad light and the driving rain and spray presented a problem too! I tried to open a window to take pictures [couldn't see through the glass!], but the force of the wind made it all a bit dodgy.

The next high tide in daylight is tomorrow about 16.15 (if that's 15.15 GMT :wink: ?) which is predicted to be 6 m which is high, but the wind may have died down by then. It might be interesting to see how much sand is left tomorrow though?

Our lights flickered too! I've insisted that we fetch our two camping lanterns and as many torches as we can find - comes of being a teuchter and being accustomed to frequent powercuts. Homer thinks I've completely flipped. :lol:

Nope. I've been mopping all night - we've got a bad seal at the bottom of our front door... Water runs down the door and into the house. Of course didn't help that some tube left the letter box open today with an unwanted flyer. :twisted:

I have a recollection of seeing an old photo of damage to The Prom during high spring tides, I'm sure I saw it online somewhere but cant remember where
I also have a vague recollection of reports of damaging spring tides in the late 1950s, ? 1958


The council workmen have been down clearingt he debris on the beach today, the tractor was also out before the high winds started pulling the sand from the wall
I hear the railings along at the fun fair were damaged and other bits of the Prom have collapsed

A little bit of footage I got the other day. Not quite as dramatic as I would have liked. Hoping we might get one more big high tide storm and I'll be ready this time.

The beach is littered with all manner of dead shellfish, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers etc. and local kids are assembling some interesting, if gruesome, collections.



Some of the damage along at Seafield.

Is there really enough sand to move from one end of the beach to the other? I thought the plan was to bring in more sand to replace the sand lost, but it appears that isn't the case.
