...MINOR COASTAL FLOODING WILL OCCUR ACROSS LOW-LYING AREAS OF
THE LOWER AND MIDDLE FLORIDA KEYS...

* COASTAL FLOODING...Minor saltwater flooding is expected to
  continue tonight and Wednesday morning over the Lower and
  Middle Florida Keys. Total water levels will reach 1.8 to 2.0
  feet above mean sea level. This is about 1 foot above the normal
  predicted tide level.

* TIMING...Over the Lower Keys, saltwater flooding will occur
  within a few hours of high tide, or from about 1 am until 5 am.
  Over the Middle Keys, impacts will be greatest throughout
  tonight, during an extended high tide.

* 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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
