The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a coastal
Flood Advisory... which is in effect from 7 am this morning to
noon EDT today.

* Location... the New Jersey shore and Delaware beaches.

* Coastal flooding... minor tidal flooding is expected with the
Friday morning high tide.

* Risk of rip currents... there is a high risk of dangerous rip
currents through tonight.

* Timing... high tide on the ocean front is expected between 7 and
9 am. High tide on the Bay Side may occur up to 2 hours later.
The high risk of rip currents will continue through this
evening.

* Impacts... roadway flooding is expected near the time of high
tide.

* Surge... total water level will be one to two feet above
astronomical tides. Heavy rain at the time of high tides could
exacerbate coastal flooding... leading to total water levels even
higher.

* Waves... up to 9 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.

County please go to www.Weather.Gov/phi/tides

There is a high risk of rip currents. A high risk of rip currents
implies that wind and/or wave conditions will support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents will
be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

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.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
