Coastal Flood Warning

This is an important message from NY Alert


HEADLINE: Coastal Flood Warning issued January 13 at 6:12AM EST until January 13 at 6:00PM EST by NWS Upton NY

DESCRIPTION: * WHAT…Up to 2 1/2 feet of inundation above ground level

expected in vulnerable areas near the waterfront and shoreline.

* WHERE…Southwest Suffolk, Southeast Suffolk and Southern
Nassau Counties.

* WHEN…Until 6 PM EST this evening.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS…Widespread moderate to locally major
flooding of vulnerable areas near the waterfront and shoreline

this morning, with 2 to 2 1/2 feet of inundation above ground

level in low lying, vulnerable areas. This will result in
extensive road closures and flooding of low lying property
including parking lots, parks, lawns and first floors and
basements of homes/businesses near the waterfront. Vehicles
parked in vulnerable areas near the waterfront will likely
become flooded and/or submerged. Flooding will likely also

extend inland from typical flood prone areas along the tidal
rivers and bays.

* SHORELINE IMPACTS…Large breaking waves of 8 to 12 feet along
the oceanfront will likely result in widespread dune erosion and
damage to dune structures and dunefront properties. Scattered
overwashes are likely, resulting in flooding of roadways and
vulnerable structures behind protective dunes. Isolated breaches
or inundation of the barrier island are possible where dune
structures have been severely compromised by previous storms.

INSTRUCTIONS: Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone property. If
travel is required, do not drive around barricades or through
water of unknown depth.
