vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the height of storm tide or wave
splashover. The majority of roads remain passable with only isolated closures.
There is no significant threat to life... and impact on property is minimal.

A coastal Flood Watch means that potential exists for moderate or major coastal
flooding. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread flooding of vulnerable
