Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Warning
Issued: 4:02 PM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect until 1 am EDT
Friday...

* location... coastal New Jersey and Delaware and the lower
Delaware Bay.

* Coastal flooding... water levels have remained elevated since the
high tide this morning... with moderate coastal flooding already
occurring in some locations. Evacuations have been reported in
these locations... with major coastal flooding possible.

* Timing... ongoing coastal flooding is expected and will peak with
the high tide which will occur between 7 and 9 PM on the ocean
front. High tide on the Delaware Bay and back bays may occur up
to three hours later.

* Waves... around 3 to 5 feet.

* Surge... tides will be around 2 feet above astronomical tides.
Heavy rain at the time of high tides could exacerbate coastal
flooding... leading to total water levels even higher.

* Impacts... roadway flooding is expected near both high tides.

* Outlook... at least minor tidal inundation flooding is
anticipated with the Friday morning high tide cycle... and
possibly again Friday evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Warning means that flooding is occurring or
imminent. Coastal residents in the warned area should be alert
for rising water... and take appropriate action to protect life
and property.

Do not leave your vehicle at a location that is prone to tidal
flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flood waters. The
water may be deeper than you think it is. You will be putting
yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged... leading to
costly repairs.

Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 7:27 PM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
Kent County in central Delaware...
Caroline County in eastern Maryland...

* until midnight EDT

* at 724 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause
minor flooding in the advisory area. One to two inches of
additional rainfall has occurred across Caroline County Maryland
and southern Kent County Delaware this afternoon and early this
evening. This is in addition to the 2 to 4 inches of rain that
fell last night.

* Mostly minor flooding is expected this evening... but if rainfall
intensity increases... warnings are possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... don't drown.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated... or
ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent.
Do not attempt to travel across flooded roads. Find alternate routes.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.

... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Friday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of Delaware and northeast Maryland... including the
following areas... in Delaware... Delaware beaches... inland
Sussex... Kent and New Castle. In northeast Maryland...
Caroline... Cecil... Kent MD... Queen Annes and Talbot.

* Through Friday afternoon

* heavy rainfall associated with low pressure will affect the area
through Friday. The heaviest rains will taper off after daybreak
Friday. Widespread 2 to 3 inch rain totals are expected with
isolated amounts around 6 inches possible near the coast. These
rainfall totals are capable of producing flooding across the
watch area. If these rainfall totals are realized, storm total
rainfall across eastern Sussex County Delaware could be close to
12 inches. This will lead to widespread flooding issues in that
area.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
