Harbour Flood Walls Raised, Coastal Flood Advisory in Effect
The National Weather Service reports that water levels are one to two feet above normal
The Washington Harbour has installed flood walls in response to a coastal flood advisory issued by the National Weather Service (NWS).
NWS extended the advisory to 2 p.m. Thursday as water levels are one to two feet above normal. The high tide should occur around 11 a.m. and the NWS expects it "to cause minor coastline inundation to areas along the Potomac River," according to a news alert.
The Washington Harbour flooded in April 2011 when the flood walls were not put into place. Businesses there are still recovering and renovating their water-damaged spaces.
