Issued: 7:35 PM EDT Apr. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 2 am EDT Wednesday...

* location: portions of southeast Virginia along the James River.

* Timing: within a few hours either side of high tide tonight.

* Coastal flood impacts: shallow flooding is expected in the most vulnerable

property damage. Expect around one foot of inundation in low lying,
vulnerable areas. Some roads and low lying property including parking lots,
Parks and lawns near the Waterfront will experience shallow flooding.

A coastal flood advisory means that onshore winds... wave action and/or tides
will combine to create flooding of low areas along the shore... and near tidal
rivers and creeks. Be prepared for the possibility of Road closures and minor
flooding of properties. If travel is necessary... do not attempt to drive
through water of unknown depth.



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