Coastal Flood Warning, Coastal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:57 AM EST on January 26, 2015

Expires 7:00 PM EST on January 27, 2015


... Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect from 3 am to 7 am EST
Tuesday...
... Coastal Flood Watch remains in effect from Tuesday afternoon
through Tuesday evening...

* location... the eastern Massachusetts coast including Cape Cod
and Nantucket.

* Coastal flooding... moderate to isolated areas of major coastal
flooding expected along with severe beach erosion.

* Timing... during the early Tuesday morning high tide and
possibly again for the late Tuesday afternoon high tide.

* Impacts... flooding of vulnerable shore roads and basements
expected during the Tuesday early morning high tide. Some
structural damage is likely in the most vulnerable locations.
Severe beach erosion is expected for the Tuesday early morning
high tide and remains a threat for the late Tuesday afternoon
high tide. This storm has enough intensity that could cause
new inlets to be formed along barrier beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Warning means that moderate or major coastal
flooding is likely. Moderate coastal flooding produces widespread
flooding of vulnerable shore roads and/or basements due to the
height of 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 observed.

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.



All tide heights are relative to mean lower low water.
Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
