Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 9:51 AM EDT May. 28, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory now in effect until 7 am EDT Monday...

* locations... sensitive coastline along the Potomac River in St.
Mary's County, including St. George Island.

* Tidal departure... around a foot above normal.

* Timing... within a few hours of high tide during the next two
tide cycles. Here are the times of the next high tides: Point
Lookout... 4:24 PM and 4:47 am, Piney Point... 5:26 PM and 5:37

* Impacts... water is expected to go over a portion of The
Bulkhead near The Straits Point Bridge, and also cover yards
in the St Georges creek and St Marys River areas. Minor
shoreline inundation is possible elsewhere.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.



Forecast tides are referenced to mean lower low water
(mllw) and mean higher high water (mhhw) unless
otherwise noted. Time of high total tide is
approximate to nearest hour. Total tide combines the
normal tide and departure from normal. Flood impact
is based on the total tide and waves where applicable.
