Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 11:12 PM EDT Apr. 19, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 4 am EDT
Saturday...

* locations... the tidal portions of the Delaware River down to
the Commodore Bay Bridge area.

* Timing... high tide on the tidal Delaware River occurs between
2:00 and 3:30 am Saturday.

* Coastal flood impacts... up to one half foot of saltwater
inundation above ground level is possible in low-lying areas
near shorelines and tidal waterways. In Philadelphia, roadway
flooding is possible in the Navy shipyard, and along Linden
Avenue, Spring Garden street, and Washington Avenue. In Delaware
County, flooding is possible in Tinicum township. In Gloucester
and Camden counties, roadway flooding is possible in Camden,
West Deptford township, Gloucester City, and other locations
near the Delaware River and its tributaries. Minor flooding is
possible in Bristol, South Trenton, Hamilton Township,
Burlington city, Delran, and other locations near the Delaware
River and its tributaries.

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.

Visit the advanced hydrologic prediction service at
water.Weather.Gov/ahps for additional water level and flood impact
information for your local tide gauge.


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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash
flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to
occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters may
quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams and
creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location
that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a Flash
Flood Warning is issued for your area.
