  • Shallow flooding is expected in the most vulnerable locations near the waterfront and shoreline. Some roads and low-lying property including parking lots, parks and lawns near the waterfront may experience shallow flooding.
  • Gale force wind gusts are expected over the coastal waters south of Parramore Island and the Lower Chesapeake Bay. These strong winds will lead to hazardous seas of 8-13 feet.
