Stone Harbor Coastal Flood Watch in Effect 10/26/18

Friday, October 26, 3:28pm: Coastal Flood Watch, Flash Flood Watch Issued

2018-10-26 15:28:20 swahl

The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Watch for barrier island communities of southern New Jersey for Saturday, October 27th, from Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon.  A Wind Advisory has also been issued from Friday at Midnight through Saturday at 11:00am.  A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from early Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon for the potential for two to three inches of rain.

A coastal storm will form off the coast Friday night which will bring rain, heavy at times; strong gusty winds approaching 50mph; and moderate coastal flooding at time of high tide Saturday.  High tide occurs Saturday at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge Saturday at 10:16am.  Street flooding is very likely at time of high tide in flood prone areas.  Never attempt to drive on any street or through any intersection that is flooded as this puts you and your vehicle at risk, and creates an unnecessary wake that can damage private and public property.

Between two to three inches of rain is possible from this storm event.  Some street flooding from heavy rain is possible in advance of the tidal flooding on Saturday morning.  Property owners should secure any objects that may become airborne, including trash cans and light patio furniture.  Contractors should secure their work sites on Friday for the anticipated strong winds Friday night into Saturday.

If you have any emergency, dial 911.  If you have a power outage, contact Atlantic City Electric directly at 1-800-833-7476.  Continue to follow traditional media outlets for updates on this weather forecast.

Here is the text of the Flash Flood Watch, the Coastal Flood Watch and the Wind Advisory courtesy of the National Weather Service:

Flash Flood Watch

 

…FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 2 AM EDT SATURDAY THROUGH

SATURDAY AFTERNOON…

 

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a

 

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of the New Jersey shore and

Middlesex County.

 

* From 2 AM EDT Saturday through Saturday afternoon

 

* Two to three inches of rain with locally higher amounts are

expected late tonight into Saturday morning, associated with

the coastal storm which will be affecting the region.

 

* Leaf clogged drains and coastal flooding could further

exacerbate flooding issues. If the axis of heaviest rainfall

develops further inland, urban areas of Middlesex and Monmouth

Counties in particular could see quick rises on small streams

and roadway flooding.

 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

 

A Flash Flood Watch means that there is the potential for flash

flooding which can be life-threatening. Heavy rain is expected to

occur over a short period of time. Rapidly rising flood waters

may quickly inundate roadways and areas of poor drainage. Streams

and creeks could leave their banks, flooding nearby properties.

 

Please monitor the forecast, especially if you live in a location

that is prone to flooding. Be prepared to take action if a flash

flood warning is issued for your area.
