High Wave Warning: Coastal Flooding Expected in San Francisco and Nearby Counties


The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory for San Francisco, the North Bay Interior Valleys, and the San Francisco Bay Shoreline Counties. Minor coastal flooding is expected, with an alert in place from 8 a.m. to noon PST on Tuesday.

Tidal levels are already up to 0.75 feet higher than expected, raising fears about flooding in low-lying regions. The high tide is forecast to peak around 09:22 a.m. PST on Tuesday, causing modest coastal flooding, particularly in flood-prone areas along the San Francisco Bay.

The alert will cause flooding in lots, parks, and highways, while only isolated road closures are likely. Residents and commuters should allow additional time for travel, since certain routes may be temporarily blocked during the advisory period. Driving past barriers or across water of unknown depth is extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.

Property owners in flood-prone locations are encouraged to take precautions to safeguard their goods from potential water damage. The National Weather Service highlights the significance of being informed about the alert and following safety guidelines.
