Flood Warning Remains In Effect Until Saturday

The latest from the National Weather Service in Mount Holly has us still in a flood warning until Saturday at 1am.

According to NWS‘s 5am briefing: One to two feet of inundation above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near shorelines and  tidal waterways. Back bays will have added water with previous tide cycles not having drained completely.

The ocean will see Gale force wind gusts of 35 to 40 knots along with 10 to 15 foot seas. These waves will be crashing into our shores causing some erosion.

What this means is that we will see some road closures here in Wildwood during the high tides like we saw last night. Also for those who follow us on Facebook saw that erosion already hit North Wildwood hard with 3rd-5th street beaches taking the biggest hits.

As a reminder, Do not drive your vehicle through flood waters. The water may be deeper than you think it is. You will be putting yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged, leading to costly repairs.

Tune back for more info down the line.
