Coastal Flood Statement

Statement as of 4:11 AM CST on December 10, 2016

Expires 11:00 AM EST on December 10, 2016


... Another round of beach erosion and tidal run up on South Padre
Island today...

* minor coastal flooding may reach or overwash into the dunes at
some locations on the area beaches this afternoon. Tides will
continue to run 1 to 1.5 feet above predicted levels inshore and
perhaps higher on the beachfront.

* Timing... run up will reach the dunes in thinner beaches during
the early to mid afternoon. High tide at Isla Blanca jetty
occurs at 151 PM.

* Impacts... water will cover part or most of the beach during the
high tide period... mainly from noon through 4 PM. Umbrellas and
trash cans not stowed behind the dunes could float away and
driving will remain difficult to impossible between the north
public beach access points to the Port Mansfield jetty... and
public beach access 5 and 6 remained closed early Saturday
morning. Rip currents and high surf will make swimming difficult for
all but the most experienced surfers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Driving will be difficult to impossible on the beach especially
during high tide this afternoon. Umbrellas... beach chairs... trash
cans... and other items should remain stowed behind the dunes.
