NTFormby have reported the following about the the combination of high winds and the tides. At one stage the Environment Agency issued a warning about potential flooding. That has now been withdrawn.
The beach access point at Victoria Road and the boardwalk at Lifeboat Road have both been closed today due to damage caused by last night's tidal storm surge. There is a further high tide at 11.45am and we expect more damage to take place at this time.— Formby (@NTFormby) January 3, 2018
This is an NTFormby image showing the extent of the damage at Victoria Road car park beach access.

You can always get an indication of potential flooding at this 'live monitoring station'.
The earlier Flood warning has now been withdrawn. But you can always follow the water/river levels at the Dovers Bridge monitoring station. https://t.co/R47flGhxQg— The Formby Blog (@FormbyVillage) January 3, 2018
