The storm surge affecting the English Channel on the 12-13 December was captured by a tide gauge on the Dart Estuary, Devon. The gauge is operated by oceanographic equipment manufacturer, Valeport. The data was telemetered and disseminated by the on-line publishing system, Port-Log.net (see image). The storm surge increased high waters levels to up to 0.8m and low water levels by a massive 1.8m. The surge and combined rainfall caused the Environment Agency to issue flood warnings for the area.
