Update From Cornwall Council
8:07pm 1st February 2014
Silver Control at the emergency management centre at New County Hall in Truro has remained open as the high tides have passed up the coast of Cornwall.
The high tide has left the Isles of Scilly and our colleagues there have wished us all well.
Crews are still in Portreath, Bude, Perranporth, Wadebridge and Looe - monitoring the weather, sea condition and flooding.
Both rest centres in Portreath and Bude have now closed and the one family in the Portreath centre has returned home.
We have CORMAC crews in five key areas; Perranporth, Wadebridge, Looe, Bude and Portreath and St Ives.
Wharf Road in St Ives remains closed. An elderly lady has been attended by ambulance crew in St Ives after her window was smashed by waves; she has minor cuts and bruises.
The main road in Bude remains closed with waves coming over the top half of the road causing flooding. Three surfers and two canoeists were asked to leave the river and after initially refusing have now left.
Beach Road in Perranporth is still flooded and closed; sandbags are not keeping the water back. We have two Cornwall Fire & Rescue pumps at three properties. Waves have been coming over the wall at Perranporth and into the car park, which is closed. Officers advised the Watering Hole on Perranporth Beach closes as it is now dark and people returning across the beach have to cross the incoming water.
The previous road collapse on Towan Beach Road, in Newquay, has reoccurred and crews are in attendance there. There is coastal flooding in Porth as well.
Portreath harbour wall is being monitored and is in good condition, with no further damage at the moment.
The tide is over the road at Polzeath.
The road in Trevone remains closed with a diversion in place.
The road, on the bridge, at Gunnislake is closed because a van has hit the parapet and gone into the river. A long diversion is in place.
There are a lot of people watching the high tides in Padstow and Polzeath but most people are being sensible are watching from safe places. The public is asked to stay away from coastal areas and not put themselves in danger.
Looe is also flooding and we have crews there dealing with minor issues.
We also understand a French fishing vessel has suffered damage to its wheel house and is under tow by the RNLI. The Coastguard are considering air lifting the crew as little headway is being made.
Chief Inspector Mark Bolt and Paul Masters would like to thank everyone who has been involved in dealing with this incident so professionally as we move now into the recovery and cleanup operation.
