Watches & Warnings

Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:22 AM EST Nov. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect from 11 am this morning to
4 PM EST Monday...
... Coastal Flood Warning is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a coastal
flood advisory, which is in effect from 11 am this morning to
4 PM EST Monday. The coastal Flood Warning has been cancelled.

* Locations... tidal areas in New Castle County in Delaware and
Salem County in New Jersey.

* Timing... from 11 am this morning to 4 PM EST Monday.

* Coastal flood impacts... up to one foot of inundation above
ground level is possible in low-lying areas near shorelines
and tidal waterways. In New Castle County, roadway flooding is
possible in New Castle, Delaware City, Port Penn, and other
locations along the Bay, the river, and the tidal tributaries.
In Salem County, flooding is possible along Oldmans creek and
the Salem river, and in Penns Grove, Carneys Point township,
Pennsville township, and other locations near the Bay, the
river, and the tidal tributaries.

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.


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