... Coastal Flood Warning in effect until 1 PM EDT this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a coastal Flood Warning...
which is in effect until 1 PM EDT this afternoon. The coastal flood advisory is
no longer in effect.

* Location... Worcester County Maryland locations adjacent to the Assawoman Bay
and tidal tributaries.

* Timing... expect flooding within about 2 hours either side of the high tide
cycle today.

* Coastal flood impacts... widespread flooding of vulnerable areas will result
in an elevated threat of property damage to homes and businesses near the
Waterfront and shoreline. Water will be 2 to 3 feet deep in some areas
resulting in a sufficient depth to close numerous roads and threaten homes and
businesses. Flooding will extend inland from the Waterfront along tidal
rivers and bays resulting in some Road closures and flooding of vehicles.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

residents in the warned area should be alert for rising water... and take
appropriate action to protect life and property. Be prepared for the
possibility of Road closures and flooding of properties. If travel is
