ARE NEEDED. LIVES MAY BE AT RISK FOR PEOPLE WHO PUT THEMSELVES IN
HARMS WAY. ISOLATED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE MAY BE OBSERVED.

MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING IS CONSIDERED SEVERE ENOUGH TO CAUSE AT

OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND/OR BASEMENTS.  SOME VULNERABLE
HOMES WILL BE SEVERELY DAMAGED OR DESTROYED.  NUMEROUS ROADS ARE
IMPASSABLE...SOME WITH WASHOUTS SEVERE ENOUGH TO BE LIFE-
