Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch, Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:07 PM CDT Jun. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Louisiana and Mississippi, including the
following areas, in southeast Louisiana, Ascension,
Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville,
Livingston, lower Jefferson, lower Lafourche, lower
Plaquemines, lower St. Bernard, lower Terrebonne, northern
Tangipahoa, Orleans, Pointe Coupee, southern Tangipahoa, St.
Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John The Baptist, St.
Tammany, upper Jefferson, upper Lafourche, upper Plaquemines,
upper St. Bernard, upper Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton
Rouge, and West Feliciana. In Mississippi, Amite, Hancock,
Harrison, Jackson, Pearl River, Pike, Walthall, and Wilkinson.

* Until 7 PM CDT this evening

* additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated
higher amounts possible. These additional amounts will be found
mainly inside rainfall bands that train over the same areas. In
addition to the flash flooding potential we can expect to see
further rises on area rivers leading to flooding along several
rivers. Drainage of heavy rainfall will be impeded along the
coast where high tides and areas of coastal inundation continue.
Greatest concern for any flash flooding will be across coastal
Mississippi which has seen 5 to 10 inches of rain with isolated
amounts near 12 inches already.

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.




304 PM CDT Thu Jun 22 2017

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 4 PM CDT
Friday...

* coastal flooding... tides 1 to 3 feet above normal will
continue through the next high tide which will occur late
tomorrow morning and through the afternoon.

* Timing... now through tomorrow afternoon.

* Impacts... moderate flooding of low lying areas and access
roads near tidal lakes... bays and inlets as well as the open
coast outside hurricane protection levee systems.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
