/O.EXT.KKEY.CF.S.0003.000000T0000Z-211024T0600Z/
Monroe Middle Keys-
357 AM EDT Sat Oct 23 2021

* WHAT...Minor saltwater flooding.

* WHERE...Middle Florida Keys.

* WHEN...Through late tonight.

* IMPACTS...Minor saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and
  lots is likely, especially around the time of the higher high
  tide occurring after midnight. 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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Do not drive through flooded roadways.
