The National Weather Service in New York NY has issued a Coastal
Flood Warning, which is in effect from 9 AM to 3 PM EST Sunday.
* LOCATIONS...Southwestern Suffolk and Southern Nassau.
* TIMING...For the Coastal Flood Warning, from 9 AM to 3 PM EST
Sunday. For the Coastal Flood Watch, from Sunday night
through Monday afternoon.
* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...There is an elevated threat of
property damage. Widespread flooding of vulnerable areas is
expected near the waterfront and shoreline. Expect 1 to 3 feet
of inundation above ground level in low lying, vulnerable
areas. This will result in numerous road closures and cause
widespread flooding of low lying property including parking
lots, parks, lawns, and homes and businesses with basements
near the waterfront. Vehicles parked in vulnerable areas near
the waterfront will likely become flooded. Flooding will also
extend inland from the waterfront along tidal rivers and bays.
* SHORELINE IMPACTS...The combination of elevated water levels
and high surf along the ocean beachfront should also result in
significant beach erosion and localized splashovers around the
times of high tide.
* OUTLOOK...Minor coastal flooding and additional beach erosion
are also possible around the times of high tide from Monday
night into Tuesday.
