FAIRFIELD COUNTY

Areas Affected:
Southern Fairfield - Southern Middlesex - Southern New Haven - Southern New London
Effective: Mon, 1/17 5:00am Updated: Sun, 1/16 4:59am Urgency: Expected
Expires: Mon, 1/17 1:00pm Severity:  Moderate  Certainty: Likely

 
Details:
...COASTAL FLOOD WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 5 AM TO 1 PM EST MONDAY...
* WHAT...Two to three feet of inundation above ground level
expected in vulnerable areas near the waterfront and shoreline.
* WHERE...In Connecticut, Southern Fairfield, Southern New
Haven, Southern Middlesex and Southern New London Counties. In
New York, Southern Westchester County.
* WHEN...From 5 AM to 1 PM EST Monday.
* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Widespread moderate to locally major
flooding of vulnerable areas is likely near the waterfront
and shoreline, including roads, parking lots, parks, lawns,
and homes and businesses with basements near the waterfront.
Several to numerous road closures are likely, and vehicles
parked in vulnerable areas near the waterfront may become
flooded. Flooding will also extend inland from the waterfront
along tidal rivers and bays.
* SHORELINE IMPACTS...Breaking waves of 4 to 7 ft will result in
beach erosion, wave splashover onto shoreline streets and
properties, and minor damage possible to shorefront structures.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The potential and threat areas for
localized major coastal flooding (3 ft above ground) will depend
on how much before high tide the easterly storm force winds
subside, if southerly gale force winds develop by the time of
high tide, and the resulting change in wave action. The higher
probability is that winds and waves will weaken enough around
the time of high tide to keep flooding at moderate flood levels
(2 to 2 1/2 ft above ground), but the intensity and complexity
of the situation necessitates preparation for localized major
flooding.
Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
