Coastal Flooding Impacts Definitions
Read this office's detailed Hurricane Local Statement

Low Minor tidal flooding of low lying areas along the Chesapeake Bay and its estuaries with little or no damage. Minor erosion and high waves may cause immediate waterfronts to close.
Moderate Some tidal flooding of immediate shore front property and significant damage to boats and piers. Significant erosion, high waves and inundation may cause waterfront and shoreline access roads to close. Examples: Ernesto 2006.
High Significant, possibly life-threatening storm surge flooding. Widespread inundation and damage to roads, infrastructure, and buildings is possible. Many waterfront and shoreline access roads will be closed, some potentially for an extended period of time. Examples: Hurricane Isabel 2003.
Extreme Severe, life-threatening storm surge. Complete inundation well inland along long stretches of shoreline. Severe, long-lasting damage to many shoreline roads, infrastructure, and buildings likely. Many waterfront and shoreline access roads will be closed for days or weeks. Severe, unprecedented inundation of tidal areas is likely.
