Coastal Flood Watch
Statement as of 4:07 AM EST on January 25, 2015

...Coastal Flood Watch in effect from late Monday night through Tuesday evening...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a coastal Flood Watch...which is in effect from late Monday night through Tuesday evening.

* Location...the eastern Massachusetts coast including Cape Cod and Nantucket.

* Coastal flooding...moderate to perhaps isolated pockets of major coastal flooding are possible along with considerable beach erosion.

* Timing...during the early Tuesday morning and late Tuesday afternoon high tide cycles.

* Impacts...flooding of vulnerable shore roads and basements possible. Some structural damage is also possible along with considerable beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Watch means that the potential exists for moderate or major coastal flooding. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the height of storm tide and/or wave action. Numerous Road closures are needed. Lives may be at risk for people who put themselves in harms way. Isolated structural damage may be observed.

Major coastal flooding is considered severe enough to cause at least scattered structural damage along with widespread flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements. Some vulnerable homes will be severely damaged or destroyed. Numerous roads are impassable...some with washouts severe enough to be life- threatening if one attempted to cross on foot or by vehicle. Some neighborhoods will be isolated. Evacuation of some neighborhoods may be necessary.

All tide heights are relative to mean lower low water. Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
