Water Is Receding
We have a coastal flood warning in effect until 11 AM. Route 1 is still closed, but should open once the water recedes. That is becoming more common these days with nor’easters. You can thank rising sea levels, the bays are silted in more each year, the inlet lets in a lot more water since it was dredged, and route 1 is built on top of sand so it has probably sank a tad over the years. Back bay tidal flood waters are receding. Long Neck road is passable now, it was flooded across at Malones. White House beach area is still flooded and that is normal for these storms. Oak Orchard is still flooded on river road. This morning’s high tide will be the last of the flooding. Winds have shifted out of the North West at twenty plus miles per hour now and will push water out of the inland bays and away from the coast. Surfing will be epic once you can get to he inlet.
