The National Weather Service (NWS) is warning that low-lying areas of Alexandria could see as much as two or three feet of tidal flooding for the next few days.
In a coastal flood warning, the NWS said from tonight (Thursday) at 8 p.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday (Oct. 30), high tides could flood parts of the city — particularly along the waterfront.
“Water is expected to approach buildings near King Street and Union Street,” the warning said. “Shoreline inundation up to one foot above ground is possible elsewhere.”
The warning noted that tides could reach four feet above normal levels at high tide, which in Alexandria is at 2:30 a.m. and p.m.
“Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone property,” the NWS said. “If travel is required, do not drive around barricades or through water of unknown depth.”
One of the biggest tidal flood events of the past 10-20 years (possibly since Hurricane Isabel at some locales), is expected Friday & Saturday. Those along tidal shores should get ready for exceptional tidal inundation! Tidal forecasts here: https://t.co/Q2WdpDGgIJ pic.twitter.com/LQkL80pzQs
