NOTE: Please refer to our Coastal Hazard Message for specific information regarding Coastal Flood Watches, Warnings and Advisories. Flood impacts are based on long-term averages. Actual impacts from any tidal flooding event may vary due to factors such as rainfall, wave action, and the number of tide cycles during which there is an onshore flow. During tropical cyclones, please refer here for additional storm surge information.

NOTE: During a Tropical Storm or Hurricane Watch or Warning, inundation mapping provided by the National Hurricane Center reflects a plausible worst case scenario. The experimental forecast above is the total water forecast that is expected to occur.

NOTE: Forecasts for the Delaware Bay at Lewes are issued routinely year-round.

8 MAJOR FLOODING. At this level, flooding starts to become severe enough to begin causing structural damage along with widespread flooding of roadways in the coastal communities of Sussex County and Kent County. Vulnerable homes and businesses may be severely damaged or destroyed as water levels rise further above this threshold. Numerous roads become impassable and some neighborhoods may be isolated. The flood waters become a danger to anyone who attempts to cross on foot or in a vehicle.
7 MODERATE FLOODING. At this level, widespread flooding of roadways begins due to high water and/or wave action with many roads becoming impassable in the coastal communities of Sussex County and Kent County. Lives may be at risk when people put themselves in harm's way. Some damage to vulnerable structures may begin to occur. COASTAL FLOOD WARNING LEVEL.
6.8 DE Route 9 in Leipsic begins to flood in the vicinity of the Leipsic River. Flooding begins in Milford along the Mispillion River. Flooding begins in Broadkill Beach, including DE Route 16. Flooding begins in Rehoboth Beach along Surf Avenue and along the boardwalk. Flooding begins in Millsboro.
