* Impacts... localized roadway flooding is expected this morning.
Numerous roadways will flood and minor to moderate property
damage is likely late this afternoon and evening. The late day
flooding may be compounded by heavy rain. Also... the combination
of very strong onshore winds and battering waves will lead to
significant beach erosion.

* Outlook... widespread minor to perhaps localized moderate tidal
flooding may occur around high tide early Tuesday morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Advisory means that minor tidal flooding is
expected or occurring. Minor tidal flooding often results in some
Road closures. Usually... the most vulnerable roadways will flood.

A coastal Flood Warning means that flooding is expected. 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.
