Coastal Flood Advisory

This is an important message from the District of Columbia AlertDC system.

The National Weather Service reports a Coastal Flood Advisory in effect until 1:00 pm this afternoon. Tidal anomalies 1-1.5 feet above normal are possible, with minor tidal inundation of a low-lying shoreline. If the tidal anomaly increases any further from the current level as a result there is a potential for moderate flooding and a coastal flood warning may be required.

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates the onshore winds and tides will combine to generate flood of low areas along the shore. Please clear all drains and catch basins to prevent flooding.
