Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 2:43 PM EDT on August 30, 2016

Expires 6:45 PM EDT on August 30, 2016


The National Weather Service in Mount Holly NJ has issued a

* Flood Advisory for...
northwestern Cape May County in southern New Jersey...
southwestern Atlantic County in southern New Jersey...
southeastern Cumberland County in southern New Jersey...

* until 645 PM EDT

* at 241 PM EDT... Doppler radar indicated heavy rain that will cause
minor flooding in the advisory area. Up to one inch of rain has
already fallen.

Additional rainfall of one to two inches is expected over the area.
This additional rain will cause minor flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... don't drown.

Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:31 AM EDT on August 30, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 31, 2016


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Wednesday
evening...

If going to the shore today through Wednesday... be alert for dangerous
rip currents and swim only in designated areas patrolled by lifeguards.

Easterly swells today will be about a foot higher than yesterday,
with breakers in excess of 4 feet expected to make it noticeably
rougher in the surf zone as compared to 24 hours ago.

While the swells will decrease ever so slowly Wednesday, a moderate
risk for the formation of dangerous rip currents will probably
continue into Wednesday evening.

The large breakers in the beach swimming zone can also knock
swimmers and waders into the sand, causing injury.

It is strongly advised to swim only in designated areas watched
by lifeguards. Swimming after the lifeguards go home or where
lifeguards do not have you in sight raises the risk of injury or
death due to rip currents.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water.
