We were expecting this... The NWS has just issued a Coastal Flood Advisory.... Due to the low barometer, the tide will be at least 9" higher than predicted... The incredible amount of rain we have had overnight contributes to this fluctuation at well. High tide in Hansville is at 9:13am on a predicted level of 11.14'. We could see 12' tides this morning....
