... Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect until 2 PM EDT this

* location... southern coastal areas of New Jersey, coastal areas
of Delaware and areas along Delaware Bay.

* Coastal flooding... moderate flooding is anticipated with this
morning's high tide.

* Timing... high tide on the New Jersey and Delaware oceanfront

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Warning means that flooding is occurring or
imminent. Coastal residents in the warned area should be alert for
rising water... and take appropriate action to protect life and
property.

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.
