...MINOR COASTAL FLOODING CONTINUES ACROSS LOW LYING AREAS OF THE LOWER KEYS... * COASTAL FLOODING...Minor saltwater flooding will continue to affect the Lower Keys, with total water levels exceeding two feet above mean sea level during high tides, or between 1.0 and 1.2 feet above the predicted tide levels. * TIMING...For the Lower Keys, the impacts from saltwater flooding will be greatest at the time of the higher high tide, which will occur after sunset until a few hours after midnight. * IMPACTS...Minor saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and lots is likely. Some storm drains will overflow and some seawalls and docks will be overtopped. Boaters can expect less clearance under fixed bridges. Motorists should remember that persistent puddles around the times of high tide are almost certain to contain a mix of saltwater.
