    Hi Rovindu,

    I’m not sure if your team have already come across this resource: Torres Strait Sustainable Land Use Plan, Part 2 Saibai. It has a 10-page section about tides and storm surge specific to Saibai Island and I found most of your questions were answered there.

    To have a more holistic understanding of flooding events in small, low-lying islands like Saibai, I encourage you to extend your scope of research to the Torres Strait region by checking Torres Strait Regional Authority’s website. I found their LAND AND SEA MANAGEMENT STRATEGY FOR TORRES STRAIT 2016-2036 very informative.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have follow-up questions.

    Regards,
    Jean
