Angry Seas and Filled Up Bays
The ocean is churning, the seas are angry today my friends. The inland bays are full and more water is coming in. Some areas already flooded over, very minor this morning, but expect to see more water at high tide in another hour or two for the inland bay communities.
Do not drive through this water is salt water and is bad for your undercarriage and brakes especially.
Beaches are flooded to the dune lines. There are a few people metal detecting. We will keep you posted on conditions throughout the week. Beach combing will be epic when this calms down, when that happens is a good question. Tuesday is looking calmer. We are not doing a beach clean up this week either.
