Coastal residents in eastern, northeastern, and southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island are being warned to prepare for minor flooding as a Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect until 2 PM EST today. The National Weather Service has predicted one to two feet of inundation above ground level in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways, with the combination of high tides and large swells resulting in washover onto coastal roadways. Road closures may occur around the time of high tide.

Minor coastal flooding is expected in a number of locations, including Revere and Winthrop in Massachusetts, Hull, Nantucket, Newport, Portsmouth, and Middletown in Rhode Island, and Provincetown and Truro in Massachusetts. In addition, minor flooding is expected in the lowest lying areas of the North Shore, from Marblehead to Newburyport.

Residents are being advised to take necessary precautions to protect flood-prone property, and to avoid driving around barricades or through water of unknown depth if travel is required.
