...COASTAL FLOOD WARNING NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EST THIS

* LOCATION...THE EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS COAST INCLUDING CAPE COD 
AND NANTUCKET.

* COASTAL FLOODING...WIDESPREAD MODERATE WITH ISOLATED MAJOR 
COASTAL FLOODING LIKELY ALONG WITH SEVERE BEACH EROSION.

* TIMING...WITHIN SEVERAL HOURS OF THE LATE AFTERNOON HIGH TIDE. A
FEW AREAS WERE UNABLE TO DRAIN FROM THE EARLY MORNING HIGH TIDE.
RENEWED COASTAL FLOODING FROM THE NEXT HIGH TIDE COULD OCCUR AS
EARLY AS 2 TO 3 PM.

* IMPACTS...FLOODING OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND BASEMENTS WILL
OCCUR AGAIN DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON HIGH TIDE. THERE REMAINS A
RISK OF ISOLATED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE IN THE MOST VULNERABLE
LOCATIONS. SEVERE BEACH EROSION IS EXPECTED...ESPECIALLY IN SUCH
LOCATIONS AS PLUM ISLAND...PLYMOUTH...NORTH SIDE OF CAPE COD
FROM SANDWICH TO EASTHAM...CHATHAM AREA...AND PORTIONS OF THE
NANTUCKET SHORELINE INCLUDING THE SIASCONSET AREA. TOTAL WATER
LEVELS SHOULD BE A LITTLE LESS FOR THE LATE AFTERNOON HIGH

NANTUCKET AREAS WILL LIKELY BE AT LEAST AS SIGNIFICANT AS WHAT
OCCURRED DURING THE PRIOR TIDE. AND ALONG THE ENTIRE EAST COAST
OF MASSACHUSETTS...THE LATE AFTERNOON HIGH TIDE COULD COMPOUND
ANY DAMAGE EXPERIENCED DURING THE PRIOR HIGH TIDE.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A COASTAL FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT MODERATE OR MAJOR COASTAL
FLOODING IS LIKELY. MODERATE COASTAL FLOODING PRODUCES WIDESPREAD
FLOODING OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND/OR BASEMENTS DUE TO THE
HEIGHT OF STORM TIDE AND/OR WAVE ACTION. NUMEROUS ROAD CLOSURES
ARE NEEDED. LIVES MAY BE AT RISK FOR PEOPLE WHO PUT THEMSELVES IN
HARMS WAY. ISOLATED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE MAY BE OBSERVED.
