Flagler, Brevard and Volusia counties under coastal flood warnings due to nor’easter

Flagler Beach Pier closed temporarily due to high waves

Coastal Flood Warning

ORLANDO, Fla. – Minor coastal flooding was reported at high tide Friday in Flagler and Brevard counties.

A coastal flood warning has been issued in Flagler, Brevard and Volusia counties through the weekend.

As the storm that brought the rain to Central Florida Friday strengthens in the Atlantic Saturday, a strong northeast wind will force the Atlantic inland.

Flooding of low-lying lots, parks and roadways may occur near the shoreline during high tide. Only isolated road closures are possible.

This potential flooding will not be from rain, rather the higher-than-normal tides from the combination of astronomical high tide and the storm itself. On top of the water coming inland, large breaking waves of 7-9 feet will be likely.

The Flagler Beach Police Department tweeted Saturday that the Flagler Beach Pier is temporarily closed due to the high waves.

Never drive through flooded roadways or around barricades.
