...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 5 AM TO 11 AM EST
SUNDAY...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Coastal
Flood Advisory, which is in effect from 5 AM to 11 AM EST Sunday.

* LOCATIONS...Coastal areas of Delaware Bay in Kent and Cumberland
Counties.

* TIMING...Flooding will occur for a few hours around the time of
high tide Sunday morning. High tide on Delaware Bay is between
7:00 AM and 10:00 AM.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Up to one foot of saltwater inundation
above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near
shorelines and tidal waterways. Minor roadway flooding is
possible in Fortescue, Money Island, Gandys Beach and other
locations near the Delaware Bay shoreline. In Kent County
Delaware, roadway flooding is possible in Woodland Beach,
Bowers Beach, Kitts Hummock, and other locations along the bay
and its tidal tributaries. Rainfall may exacerbate tidal
levels, leading to more significant impacts.

* WAVES...Wave heights on Delaware Bay are forecast to be 2 to 5
feet.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

Visit the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service at
water.weather.gov/ahps for additional water level and flood
impact information for your local tide gauge.
