Coastal Flood Avisory

Rehoboth beach at 7:30 am Thursday Sept 29th

That deluge kept the whole county up last night, wow!  The coastal flood advisory is on until eleven tonight.  We are looking at water to the dunes at the beaches during high tide this morning and evening. Water is already to the dune bases at the Indian River inlet.  Waves are filling in swales and creating a few more. I don’t know if parks will close drive on beaches, but be careful if you do venture out there.  The washouts at Faithful Steward and the point will be full. Possible tidal flooding in low lying areas around the inland bays.  That will occur around ten this morning if it happens.  Tide is two feet higher than normal.  Waves at the beach could reach up to eight feet by tomorrow.

Fish On!
