Ocean City Under Flood Watch, Wind Advisory for Thursday

first_imgThe National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch and High Wind Advisory in effect for Ocean City on Thursday.The latest forecast calls for a coastal storm to bring heavy rain and strong easterly winds throughout the day. The Flood Watch will be in effect from 10 a.m. Thursday through the evening. The National Weather Service predicts a water level of 5.3 feet on the mean low water (MLW) scale for a high tide at 1:29 p.m. on the bay side of Ocean City. That level is at the bottom threshold of minor coastal flooding, but conditions could be worse if heavy rain coincides with high tide. Visit www.ocnj.us/octides to compare that prediction to recent and historic tide levels.Street flooding is likely prior to high tide and may last for several hours. Vehicles should be moved from areas that typically experience tidal flooding. The roads closer to the beach including Central and Wesley avenues are typically at higher elevation.For your safety and the protection of your vehicle and neighboring properties, never attempt to drive through flood waters, and do not drive around barricades. City crews are out clearing storm drains in advance of the storm, but storm preparation can include making sure inlets near your home are clear of debris.The Wind Advisory is in effect from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thursday. Forecasters predict east and northeast winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts as strong as 50 mph. Please secure any loose objects on your property.For Police & Fire Department emergencies, call 911. For non-emergencies, call 609-399-9111. The October 2018 storm caused road closures, but continued work to mitigate flooding has lessened the problem, residents say. last_img read more
