LISTEN: Ian Nunn from the Environment Agency is urging us not to worry about flood alerts which have been issued in east Kent - 08/01/2019
Flood alerts are in force in the east of Kent this lunchtime...
It's thought a tidal surge and strong winds could affect parts of the coast from #Sheppey all the way to #Margate.
There's also concern for low-lying land around the #Thames estuary, River #Medway and River #Stour.
Ian Nunn from the Environment Agency says the risk of flooding is quite low and there's no need to panic.
