Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 10:09 AM EDT Sep. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 11 am EDT this morning...
... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

* location... Virginia Beach and Outer Banks Currituck locations adjacent to
the Atlantic Ocean... Chesapeake Bay and tidal tributaries.

* Timing... for tidal flooding... minor flooding is possible with the high tide
cycle this morning. The most likely time for strong rip currents is a couple
hours on either side of low tide.

* Coastal flood impacts... shallow flooding is expected in the most vulnerable
locations near the Waterfront and shoreline resulting in a low threat of
property damage. Expect around one foot of inundation in low lying,
vulnerable areas. Some roads and low lying property including parking lots,
Parks and lawns near the Waterfront will experience shallow flooding.

* Shoreline impacts... breaking waves will result in beach erosion with some
minor damage possible to dune structures.

* Surf or rip current risk... nearshore large breaking waves of 4 to 6 ft will
result in dangerous surf conditions and a high risk of rip currents. Do not
enter or approach the water due to the risk of being swept away.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory means that onshore winds... wave action and/or tides
will combine to create flooding of low areas along the shore... and near tidal
rivers and creeks. Be prepared for the possibility of Road closures and minor
flooding of properties. If travel is necessary... do not attempt to drive
through water of unknown depth.

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip currents...
longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards create life-threatening
conditions in the surf zone. Caution should be used when in or near the water.
