Hurricane Maria predicted to stay offshore but cause wind, minor coastal flooding

windy

Sept. 26, 2017 - Hurricane Maria is expected to move north for another day before beginning to curve eastward into the Atlantic Ocean. Effects in Hampton are expected to be minor, with slightly higher winds and tides.

Boaters may see the greatest impacts, and for that reason the Hampton City Council boat tour of economic development and tourism sites that was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon is being canceled. (Council will still meet Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Kecoughtan for the regular business meeting.)

Some minor tidal and coastal flooding is expected, beginning late Tuesday and into Wednesday in Hampton and Hampton Roads, but the greatest impacts are expected to be felt along the Outer Banks.

The highest tide is expected at 3 p.m. Wednesday, breaking into the "minor" flooding levels. High tides Tuesday and Thursday may cause flooding in some very low-lying coastal areas.
