Aberystwyth waves and storm aftermath

Aberystwyth waves and storm aftermath

Two gales in mid March 2008 caused the waves to crash over the promenade and put down thick depositions of shingle and sand from the beach.
The Prom effectively turned into the beach!
On both occasions- Monday 10th and Wednesday 12th, the Prom had to be closed to traffic at high tides, and on the Monday, the public were not allowed on there either.
The Monday storm was caused by the combination of gale force winds, the lowest pressure for about 20 years (954 mbar), and a Spring tide of 5.5m.
Wednesdays affair was the more straightforward case of a westerly gale, but a 5m high tide also contributed.
