917 PM EDT Tue Sep 29 2020

* WHAT...Minor saltwater flooding.

* WHERE...Florida Keys.

* WHEN...Through Wednesday afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Minor saltwater flooding of low elevation streets
  and lots is likely. Some storm drains will overflow, and some
  seawalls and docks will be overtopped. Boaters can expect less
  clearance under fixed bridges. Motorists should remember that
  persistent puddles around the times of high tide are almost
  certain to contain a mix of saltwater.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...For the Lower and Middle Keys, minor
  saltwater flooding will occur mainly around the times of high
  tide Wednesday morning into early Wednesday afternoon. For the
  Upper Keys, water levels will tend to stay high for the
  Bayside communities of Key Largo, with very little relief at
  low tide.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Do not drive fast through flooded roadways. The waves created
from speeding cars can splash parked cars and enter low-lying
residences and businesses.
