Coastal Flood Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement, Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 6:57 AM EDT on September 29, 2016

Expires 6:00 AM EDT on September 30, 2016


... High rip current risk remains in effect through this evening...
... Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until 11 PM EDT this
evening...

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

* Coastal flooding... minor coastal flooding is possible with
both the high tide this morning and the high tide this
evening. Tidal flooding may approach moderate with the high
tide this evening. Note that there is also a risk of flooding
due to heavy rain through out the day.

* Risk of rip currents... there is a high risk of rip currents
through this evening.

* Timing... the coastal flooding is expected with the high tides
which will occur between 7 and 9 am and 7 and 9 PM on the
ocean front. High tide on the Bay Side may occur up to one
hour later. The high risk of rip currents will continue
through this evening.

* Impacts... roadway flooding is expected near both high tides.

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

* Waves... waves as high as 9 feet are possible

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

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

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.

please go to www.Weather.Gov/phi/tides






624 am EDT Thu Sep 29 2016

... The Flood Advisory remains in effect until 815 am EDT for
southeastern Kent... northern Sussex and southeastern Caroline
counties...

At 621 am EDT... as much as three to five inches of rain has fallen
across the area during the last several hours. Additional periods of
moderate to heavy rainfall will continue to develop and move across
the area which could contribute to additional flooding.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Georgetown... Milford... Seaford... Harrington... Lewes... Federalsburg...
Milton... Bridgeville... Ellendale... Andrewsville... Agner...
Smithville... Blades... Greenwood... Houston and Farmington.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
