This image shows the flooded St Peter Port, Guernsey waterfront during the morning high spring tide of 10 March 2008. High water was meant to reach 9.8 metres at 0815 but because the barometric pressure was only 973 mb Hg according to the Guernsey weather website the tide actually reached a height of 10.7 metres according to St. Peter Port harbour master Captain Peter Gill. This image was taken 27 minutes after high water as the tide was already receding. High water completely flooded the coast road, which was closed to vehicles for about one hour although several bicycles did manage to cycle through.
