* NORTH OREGON COAST TIDES…Total tide at Astoria will be 10.0 to

* IMPACTS…Overflow flooding for the South Washington coast is
most likely to occur in low-lying areas near bays and sloughs,
highways 6 and 101, the towns of Raymond and South Beach and
lower reaches of coastal rivers. For the North Oregon coast, one
of the more susceptible areas for flooding is along Fraser Road
in Tillamook County.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Coastal Flood Advisory for Minor Tidal Overflow indicates that
coastal and inland flooding of low lying areas is expected due to
elevated river levels combined with high astronomical tides.
Property damage can occur, but is usually localized. Low-lying
roads may be closed due to high water.
