Title: Sidmouth flood plan : public information leaflet
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This leaflet analyses the Sidmouth Flood Plan. This document provides information to advise people living in flood risk areas of the arrangements that have been put in place to deal with a flood. It is unlikely that flooding will occur and you should not be alarmed. However it is important to read this leaflet so that you are aware of what could happen, what you can do to limit damage and what help will be available. Sidmouth is at risk of flooding from the River Sid. Flooding is likely to be caused by prolonged heavy rainfall on a saturated catchment, or intense rainfall over a short period as occasionally experienced during summer thunderstorm activity. Sidmouth is also at risk from the sea during a combination of high spring tides, low pressure and on-shore gales causing large wave action.
