The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch and a Wind Advisory for Avalon for an approaching coastal storm that will impact our region Sunday night.  The Flood Watch runs from Sunday evening through Monday afternoon, December 17-18th.  Street flooding is possible due to heavy rainfall; some minor tidal flooding may also occur.  The Wind Advisory is in effect Sunday evening through Monday morning with easterly winds gusting towards 50mph.  High tide at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge will occur Sunday at 11:45pm, and again Monday at 12:04pm.

It is advisable to secure any outdoor objects, including patio furniture and holiday decorations.  Residents who live in areas of Avalon prone to rainfall flooding should consider moving their vehicles to areas of Avalon that do not experience this flooding in advance of Sunday evening.  Avalon has produced a color-coded map indicating these areas in lavender.  If you have any emergency, dial 911.  Please see the Avalon flood map and the briefing package prepared by National Weather Service/Mt.
