Coastal Flood Advisory For Sussex County Till Monday

Oct 1, 2022 … Sussex County is in a flood advisory, that means it is going to flood but not bad enough for a warning (yet). The inland bays are stacked with water and full. Each high tide will get a little worse. Monday night’s high tide should be the highest over normal.
We are looking to at least Tuesday morning for higher than usual water. High tide is 1:30 AM tonight, and 2:23 PM tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon. It is not going to stop blowing, mixed with off and on rain for a bit (days).
