Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory, Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 1:02 AM EDT Sep. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this evening...
... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 6 am this morning to 2 PM EDT this
afternoon...
... Coastal Flood Warning is cancelled...
... High surf advisory is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a coastal flood advisory...
which is in effect from 6 am this morning to 2 PM EDT this afternoon. The
coastal Flood Warning has been cancelled. The high surf advisory has been
cancelled.

* Location... Maryland Eastern Shore locations adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean...
ocean side and Bayside locations of Accomack and Northampton Virginia...
including tidal tributaries.

* Timing... for tidal flooding... expect minor flooding within about 2 hours
either side of the high tide cycle today. 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 significant beach erosion.
Erosion and damage to dune structures is expected. Actions should be taken to
protect property along the immediate shoreline.

* Surf or rip current risk... 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.
