...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON EDT
TUESDAY...
...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

* COASTAL FLOODING...Sensitive and low-lying locations along the
  Atlantic coast may experience minor flooding near the times of
  high tide.

* TIMING...Coastal flood hazards will persist through at least
  tomorrow morning especially during high tides. Rip Current
  risk will continue through tonight.

* IMPACTS...Life threatening rip currents will pose a hazard to
  all swimmers. Heed the advice of lifeguards. Swimming is not
  recommended. Coastal flooding will be possible at high tide.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

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.

Coastal Hazard Message
National Weather Service Key West FL
422 PM EDT Mon Oct 14 2019

FLZ076-077-150300-
/O.EXT.KKEY.CF.Y.0006.000000T0000Z-191015T2100Z/
Monroe Upper Keys-Monroe Middle Keys-
422 PM EDT Mon Oct 14 2019

...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT...

* COASTAL FLOODING...Saltwater flooding will continue to affect
  the Upper and Middle Keys, with total water levels reaching
  nearly two feet above mean sea level, or between 1.0 and 1.3
  feet above the predicted tide levels.

* TIMING...For the Middle Keys, the impacts from saltwater
  flooding will be greatest at the times of high tide, which will
  occur between midnight and 4 am, and also late Tuesday
  afternoon. Across the Upper Keys, water levels will stay high,
  with little to no relief at low tide.

* IMPACTS...Saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and lots
  is expected. Low-lying 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 saltwater.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that above normal tides will
generate moderate flooding of low lying areas.
