Sunday, November 17th, 8:25am: Coastal Flood Warning Extended Through Monday

The National Weather Service has continued a Coastal Flood Warning for Avalon and surrounding communities starting Sunday, November 17th at 8:00am through Monday, November 18th, at 5:00pm.  Rough surf is also expected during this storm event, with strong winds and some rain.  A Wind Advisory is also in effect for wind gusts approaching 50mph.

High tide at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge occurs Sunday at 10:49am and again at 11:32pm; high tide occurs Monday at 11:46am.

If you live on a street that typically floods during tidal flooding events, it is advisable for you to move your vehicle to another part of Avalon that typically does not flood.  Do not drive on any flooded street or through any flooded intersection as this puts you and your vehicle at risk and causes a wake that damages public and private property.  Portions of Ocean Drive and Dune Drive may experience flooding.  Avalon has prepared a flood risk guide to help assist you with knowing where it may flood, and where you may safely relocate your vehicle.

If you have an emergency, dial 911.  If you lose electrical power, contact Atlantic City Electric directly at 1-800-833-7476.  Please remember at times of high tide it may be necessary to close the road leading to the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge due to unsafe travel conditions.

Friday, October 11th, 7:00am: Coastal Flood Warning, Moderate Flooding Expected

Flood risk by NWS

The National Weather Service has continued the Coastal Flood Warning for our area through early Saturday morning, December 12th.  Moderate coastal flooding is anticipated at time of both high tides on Friday, and minor coastal flooding is anticipated for the high tide event on Saturday morning.

Our community received street flooding during Thursday evening’s high tide event. Never drive on any flooded street or through any flooded intersection as this puts you and your vehicle at risk, and creates an unnecessary wake that can damage private and public property.

High tide at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge on Friday occurs at 7:15am, and again at 7:27pm. High tides on Saturday occur at 7:50am, and again at 8:04pm.  If you live in a flood prone section of our community, consider moving your vehicle to higher ground, especially during high tide events.

Thursday, October 10th, 5:18pm: Coastal Flood Warning Continues for Avalon

The National Weather Service has continued the Coastal Flood Warning for Avalon and other coastal communities through the Friday evening high tide.  There is the expectation of moderate coastal flooding during high tide Thursday evening, Friday morning, and Friday evening, October 10-11.

A low pressure system has stacked water in the back bays with a strong wind that has not allowed the bays to drain during recent days.  The continued wind is expected to cause moderate tidal flooding, windy conditions, and possibly additional beach erosion through Friday evening.

High tide at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge Thursday will occur at 6:48pm, and on Friday at 7:15am and again at 7:27pm.  Street flooding is expected in flood prone areas.  Do not attempt to drive on any flooded street.  Turn around, don’t drown.  If you live on a street that often experiences tidal flooding, you are advised to move your car to higher ground especially during high tide events.

Avalon has developed a flood risk map to help prepare you for tidal events.

At times, the Avalon Police Department may have to close the access road to the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge due to unsafe travel conditions.  Pay attention to the bridge warning signs located on Ocean Drive heading north towards the bridge.

Friday, Sept. 6th: Dorian Brings Coastal Flood Advisory, Rip Currents, Rough Surf

The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory, a Rip Current statement, and a High Surf Advisory for the southern New Jersey coastline.  These weather advisories are a result of Hurricane Dorian which impacted the North Carolina coast on Friday morning and is expected to move further out to sea later today.

The impact to our region will be the potential for minor coastal flooding at time of high tide on Friday afternoon.  High tide will occur at the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge at 3:55pm.  Do not attempt to drive on a street that is impacted by flooding.  Showers and windy conditions are possible today with wind gusts approaching 39mph.  Secure any outdoor objects that are prone to high winds.

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Avalon.  The Watch is in effect on Saturday, June 29th until 7:00pm.

A pop up thunderstorm is possible during the late afternoon hours.  A front that will bring some relief from the humidity will come across our area early this evening and may produce more widespread thunderstorms.  These storms could produce heavy rainfall in a short period of time which may lead to some street flooding.  If you hear thunder or see lightning, seek shelter immediately.  Never attempt to drive on any street that is flooded by rainwater.

This Watch may be elevated to a Warning which means a thunderstorm is imminent.  Avalon has prepared a flood risk map that shows where streets may be flooded during storm events.
