* TIMING...For the Coastal Flood Warning, from 9 AM to 3 PM EST

* 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.

Shirley, NY - March 30th, 2015 - Another Alligator has been turned to the Suffolk County SPCA and NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation. This time, the 3 foot long reptile came from a home in Shirley.
Chief Roy Gross of the Suffolk SPCA said that the reptile, a Smooth Face Caiman was turned in and was so nasty and dangerous, it could hardly be handled. Gross said that these wild creatures are not pets and should not be kept confined in the home.
The Caiman appeared healthy and was transferred by the SPCA to a licensed reptile sanctuary out of state.
