Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 9:39 AM EDT Apr. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect until 2 PM EDT this
afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Baltimore MD/Washington DC has
issued a coastal flood advisory, which is in effect until 2 PM
EDT this afternoon.

* Location... the tidal Potomac in St. Marys County, Maryland

* tidal departure... 1 to 1.5 feet above normal

* timing... around the time of high tide today, which is at 109 PM
EDT at colton's point and 1233 PM EDT at Piney Point.

* Impacts... water is expected to go over a portion of The
Bulkhead near The Straits Point Bridge, and also cover yards in
the St Georges creek and St Marys River areas. Minor shoreline
inundation is possible elsewhere.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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



Forecast tides are referenced to mean lower low water
(mllw) and mean higher high water (mhhw) unless
otherwise noted. Time of high total tide is
approximate to nearest hour. Total tide combines the
normal tide and departure from normal. Flood impact
is based on the total tide and waves where applicable.

MLLW categories - minor 2.7 ft, moderate 3.5 ft, major 5.0 ft
mhhw categories - minor 1.1 ft, moderate 1.9 ft, major 3.4 ft
