I am having a minor altercation with our local council, which some of you have been kind enough to say interested you, click here for details.

Ramsgate tides

The videos below are of an ordinary spring tide with a northerly blowing it away, things get much worse with a south easterly or southerly especially when combined with a tidal surge, caused by a high pressure system over the north sea pushing down on the water and sending a lot more to Ramsgate.    
The videos may take a little while to appear depending on how fast youtube is running. Amusingly you can watch all the videos at once.

The Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL), conducts world-class research in tides. As you can see from their graphs for Dover the sea here has already risen quite a bit.
