Areal Flood Watch, Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 7:56 PM EDT on May 26, 2018

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on May 28, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of South Florida, including the following areas,
coastal Broward, coastal Collier, coastal Miami-Dade, coastal
Palm Beach, far South Miami-Dade, Glades, Hendry, inland
Broward, inland Collier, inland Miami-Dade, inland Palm Beach,
Mainland Monroe, Metro Broward, Metro Miami-Dade, and Metro
Palm Beach.

* Through Sunday evening

* widespread 3 to 8 inches are expected due to deep tropical
moisture streaming northward into South Florida. Locally much
higher amounts are possible. Rainfall of this magnitude may lead
to flooding.

* Grounds are nearly saturated from significant rainfall over the
past week or so, so additional rainfall will easily runoff and
lead to flooding. Flooding of canals, streets, and underpasses,
as well as other drainage areas and low-lying spots can be
expected. The hardest hit areas may see water intruding on
vulnerable structures and causing impassable travel lanes and
roadways.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.




432 PM EDT Sat may 26 2018

... High rip current risk now in effect through Monday afternoon...

* timing... through Monday.

* Impacts... strong rip currents will be hazardous for those in
the surf zone along the Atlantic beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
