Warnings

Warnings (In effect)

High water level warning in effect

Fourchu

Issued 03:22 AM AST 29 January 2022 Higher than normal water levels are expected or occurring.

High storm surge combined with large waves could give flooding conditions early Sunday morning to vulnerable coastal locations..

Locations: Atlantic Coast of Nova Scotia and southern Cape Breton.

Time span: between 4:00 and 8:00 a.m. AST Sunday morning.

High tide: near 6:00 a.m AST


Remarks: An intense winter storm will give high water levels combined with large waves impacting the coast, giving flood conditions and some coastal erosion to areas exposed to the south. This warning may be extended to include Yarmouth County if forecast conditions worsen.

Coastal erosion is possible in vulnerable areas. Exposed coastal areas are at risk of flooding, and vessels and marine infrastructure in those areas are at risk of damage. Marine interests close to the shoreline should stay alert for worsening conditions, especially during high tide.

High water level warnings are issued when water levels pose a threat to coastal regions.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. For more information monitor Canadian Coast Guard radio or Weatheradio stations.
