* location... Virginia Eastern Shore.

inundation in low lying, vulnerable areas. Some roads and low
lying property including parking lots, Parks and lawns near the
Waterfront will experience shallow flooding.

* Surf or rip current risk... nearshore large breaking waves of 3 to
5 ft will result in dangerous surf conditions and a high risk of
rip currents. Do not enter or approach the water due to the risk
of being swept away.

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.

A coastal flood advisory means that onshore winds... wave action
and/or tides will combine to create flooding of low areas along the
shore... and near tidal rivers and creeks. Be prepared for the
possibility of Road closures and minor flooding of properties. If
travel is necessary... do not attempt to drive through water of
unknown depth.
