Water levels along the coast

Posted by Chris in Tampa on 9/26/2017, 5:52 am

Water levels along coast for Maria:


Around 1.5 to 2 feet so far in some places above what you would normally expect the water level to be.

NHC calling for 2 to 4 feet. As of 5am EDT Tuesday:

STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water is
expected to reach the following heights above ground if the peak
surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Cape Lookout to Duck including the sound side of the Outer
Banks...2 to 4 ft

Storm surge flooding, especially along the sound side of the
North Carolina Outer Banks, is expected beginning later today, and a
Storm Surge Watch has been issued for portions of eastern North
