Locations included in the advistory include Virginia Beach, areas adjacent to the ocean and the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, including tidal tributaries.

Weather Service officials state, “shallow flooding is expected in the most vulnerable locations near the waterfront and shoreline, resulting in a low threat of property damage,” adding that individuals should “expect around one foot of inundation in low lying, vulnerable areas.  Some roads and low lying property including parking lots, parks and lawns near the waterfront will experience shallow flooding.”
