Severe flood warnings issued for the east coast of the UK

13 January 2017 Last updated at 08:25 GMT

Some people who live near the sea on the east coast of the UK have been told to leave their homes after warnings of flooding.

The warning has been given because strong wind and high tides could combine today causing the sea level to rise.

This could mean houses and roads on the east coast could be flooded.

A "severe" warning means there could be a "danger to life". Many people have already been evacuated or told to be aware and the army has been called in in some places to keep people safe.

The areas that are particularly at risk are Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.
