Coastal Flood Warning was in effect until midnight Sunday, October 5


A Coastal Flood Warning was in effect for the Tri-State area until midnight Eastern Standard Time Sunday, October 5 for high water levels along the Delaware Bay and upper Delaware River, according to the National Weather Service Philadelphia/Mount Holly, N.J. office.

The Nor’easter progressed along the coast, causing a lot of rain to fall. The approach of Hurricane Joaquin did not directly impact NCC; however, the lingering effects of the storm surge from this storm prolonged the Coastal Flood tide cycle for 3-4 days. The Coastal Flood Warning meant that moderate tidal flooding was occurring or imminent.

With any flood warning, be prepared for rising water levels and take appropriate action to protect life and property. Do not drive your vehicle through flood waters; the water may be deeper than you think, putting yourself and loved ones in danger. Please, always be careful.
