Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Warning is issued when moderate or major coastal flooding is
expected. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread flooding of vulnerable
shore roads and/or basements due to the height of the storm tide and/or wave
action. Numerous Road closures are needed. Lives may be at risk for people who
put themselves in harms way. Isolated structural damage may be possible.

Major coastal flooding is considered severe enough to cause at least scattered
structural damage along with widespread flooding of vulnerable shore roads
and/or basements. Some vulnerable homes will be severely damaged or destroyed.
Numerous roads are impassable... some with washouts severe enough to be life-
threatening if one attempted to cross on foot or by vehicle. Some neighborhoods
will be isolated. Evacuation of some neighborhoods may be necessary.

A coastal Flood Advisory is issued for minor coastal flooding of the most
vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the height of storm tide or wave
splashover. The majority of roads remain passable with only isolated closures.
There is no significant threat to life... and impact on property is minimal.



Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
