Watches & Warnings

Coastal Hazard Statement, Coastal Flood Warning
Issued: 4:02 PM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk now in effect through Friday afternoon...
... Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect until 1 am EDT
Friday...

* location... the central and southern New Jersey shore and
Delaware beaches.

* Coastal flooding... minor coastal flooding occurred this
morning along the central and southern New Jersey coasts and
the Delaware coast. Tidal inundation flooding will occur again
tonight and probably be half a foot to a foot deeper than what
occurred this morning... leading to moderate coastal flooding
with this evenings high tide cycle. Easterly winds will whip
waves of 5 to 9 feet onto the shore as well.

* Risk of rip currents... there is a high risk of dangerous rip
currents through tonight.

* Timing... the oceanfront coastal flooding is expected with the
high tide between 7 and 9 PM. High tide on the Bay Side may
occur up to 3 hours later. The high risk of rip currents will
continue through this evening.

* Impacts... roadway flooding is expected near the time of high
tide.

* Surge... tides will be around 2 to 2.5 feet above astronomical
tides. Heavy rain at the time of high tides could exacerbate
coastal flooding... leading to total water levels even higher.

* Waves... 5 to 9 feet.

* Outlook... at least minor tidal inundation flooding is
anticipated with the Friday morning high tide cycle... and
possibly again Friday evening.

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 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.

There is a high risk of rip currents. A high risk of rip currents
implies that wind and/or wave conditions will support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents will
be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
