A COASTAL FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR MODERATE OR MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING. MODERATE COASTAL FLOODING PRODUCES WIDESPREAD FLOODING OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND/OR BASEMENTS DUE TO THE HEIGHT OF STORM TIDE AND/OR WAVE ACTION. NUMEROUS ROAD CLOSURES ARE NEEDED. LIVES MAY BE AT RISK FOR PEOPLE WHO PUT THEMSELVES IN HARMS WAY. ISOLATED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE MAY BE OBSERVED. MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING IS CONSIDERED SEVERE ENOUGH TO CAUSE AT LEAST SCATTERED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE ALONG WITH WIDESPREAD FLOODING OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND/OR BASEMENTS. SOME VULNERABLE HOMES MAY BE SEVERELY DAMAGED OR DESTROYED. EVACUATION OF SOME NEIGHBORHOODS MAY BE NECESSARY.
