Coastal Flood Warning Little Assawoman Bay

There is a coastal flood warning for Little Assawoman Bay until 4 PM. I would also be concerned with route 1 along Rehoboth bay due to heavy winds pushing water at high tide below Dewey beach. There is water already pushing up close to the road. High winds will be an issue until 7 PM. Do not go into the woods today, not even sure why you have to tell people that. Keep an eye on the Deldot Traffic cameras for road conditions near the Charles W Cullen bridge. Route 1 is already seeing some water below the bridge towards Bethany beach. High tide is at 7 PM.
