Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 4:58 PM EDT May. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect until 11 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a coastal flood advisory...
which is in effect until 11 PM EDT this evening.

* Location... Atlantic coast side of the Eastern Shore.

* Timing... a couple hours on either side of tonights high tide cycle.

* Coastal flood impacts... shallow flooding is expected in the most vulnerable
locations near the Waterfront and shoreline resulting in a low threat of
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.

* Shoreline impacts... breaking waves will result in significant beach erosion.
Erosion and damage to dune structures is expected. Actions should be taken to
protect property along the immediate shoreline.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.



Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
