Coastal Hazard Statement, Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 5:07 AM EDT on October 17, 2017

Expires 4:00 AM EDT on October 18, 2017


... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening.

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk, which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... expect surf to become rough and the risk of rip
currents to become high as the day unfolds due to the effects of
strong maritime winds behind a cool front.

* Impacts... rough surf can be more dangerous than it appears while
standing on the beach. Heavy breaking waves can knock you off a
sandbar into deeper water or into strong currents.


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 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.




325 PM EDT Mon Oct 16 2017

... Flood Watch in effect from late tonight through late Tuesday
night...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a

* Flood Watch for a portion of east central Florida, including
the following areas, coastal Volusia County, inland Volusia
County, and northern Brevard County.

* From late tonight through late Tuesday night

* increasing moisture and elevated northeast winds along and
behind a passing front will lead to the potential for persistent
heavy rainfall bands across Volusia and northern Brevard
counties from late tonight through Tuesday night. Rainfall
amounts up to 1 to 3 inches are expected across this area during
this timeframe, with locally higher amounts of 4 to 5 inches
possible.

* This heavy rainfall will have the potential to cause flooding
of low-lying areas and poor drainage areas. Flooding will also
affect roadways, creeks and small streams. Remember to not drive
across flooded roadways. Turn around. Don't drown.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be
alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to
flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding
develop.
