Mayor Patrick Rosenello and the Emergency Management Committee of the City of North Wildwood would like to advise residents and visitors of the potential for moderate coastal flooding on Tuesday, March 14th as a result of a nor’easter.
"Moderate Flooding" means that water will encompass Delaware – New York Avenues up to New Jersey Avenue (tidal surge will be in the upper 7 to 8 foot above MLLW range).
High tides for Tuesday, March 14th are as follows: 10:02 a.m. and 10:28 p.m.
Moderate Flooding Expected
With the potential for high winds, residents and visitors are reminded to secure all properties and belongings including lawn chairs, umbrellas and trashcans. Also forecasted is the potential for significant precipitation in the form of rain/wintry mix/snow, which due to slow runoff, may cause extended and localized flooding in areas that do not normally experience tidal flooding.
Residents and visitors are advised to NEVER drive down a flooded roadway.
