Warnings

Warnings (In effect)

High water level warning in effect

Eastern Shore

Issued 7:56 PM ADT 21 September 2020 Higher than normal water levels are expected or occurring.

Maximum water levels: storm surge up to 50 cm

Maximum wave heights: 7 to 9 metres, breaking higher along parts of the coast.

Locations: From Yarmouth County east to Guysborough.

Time span: For Southwestern Shore: near high tides Tuesday morning and Tuesday evening. For Eastern Shore: near the high tides Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

Remarks: The main risk is for very large waves, rough and pounding surf and a threat for rip currents. On Tuesday morning 3-4 metre waves at the coast will build to 7-9 metres late in the day, with waves breaking higher along parts of the coast. The high waves will persist into the overnight period. Outside of the times for high tide, there is still a threat for very large waves, rough and pounding surf, and local overwash. The public should observe extreme caution.

Vessels, infrastructure, and equipment are at risk of damage in areas directly exposed to high waves and pounding surf. Coastal erosion is likely in vulnerable areas. Exposed coastal areas are at risk of flooding, and vessels and marine infrastructure in those areas are at risk of damage. Mariners are advised to avoid affected shorelines.

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.
