Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 4:28 AM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a

* Flash Flood Warning for...
southwestern Kent County in central Delaware...
west central Sussex County in southern Delaware...
Caroline County in eastern Maryland...

* until 930 am EDT

* at 425 am EDT... Doppler radar indicated a thunderstorm producing
heavy rain across the warned area. Two to three inches of rain
have already fallen across portions of Caroline County within the
last hour. This heavy rain will slowly move northeastward over the
next hour or two. Because this amount of rain will fall in a short
period of time... flash flooding is likely to occur.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Seaford... Denton... Federalsburg... Bridgeville... Greensboro...
Oakland... Ridgely... Preston... Goldsboro... Harmony... Andrewsville...
Agner... Smithville... Sandtown... Hazlettville and Henderson.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Driving into flood waters could put your life at risk and cost you
thousands of dollars in vehicle repairs. Flood waters may be deeper
that you think. Turn around and find an alternate Route.

Coastal Flood Advisory, Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 5:08 AM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Coastal Flood Advisory in effect until 11 PM EDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a coastal
Flood Advisory... which is in effect until 11 PM EDT this evening.

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

* Coastal flooding... minor coastal flooding is possible with both
the high tide this morning and the high tide this evening. Tidal
flooding may approach moderate with the high tide this evening.
Note that there is also a risk of flooding due to heavy rain
through out the day.

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

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

* Waves... on the Delaware Bay... waves up to 5 feet will be
possible.

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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Advisory means that minor tidal flooding is
expected. Minor tidal flooding often results in some Road
closures. Usually... the most vulnerable roadways will flood.

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.
