Hinkley Point: Is it flood proof?

Stalled in my pursuit of jamming Libyan State TV, I've just emailed the Green Party Councillor in North Somerset:

Hi Tom

I don't suppose you could enquire what would happen to Hinkley Point in the event of a storm surge flooding the power station, or even in a repeat of the 1607 tsunami?

Would cooling systems be lost?

Should they reposition all vital systems, say, 2 metres above the ground?
