bays from Brooklyn through southwestern Suffolk County.

* Tidal departure... 1 to 2 1/2 ft above astronomical tides.

* Coastal flood impacts... expect around 1 to 2 feet of
inundation above ground level in low lying, vulnerable areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away

sandbars and near structures such as groins... jetties... and
piers. Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to learn about any
surf hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention to flags and
posted signs and swim in life guarded areas.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current... relax and
float... and do not swim against the current. If able... swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape... face the
shore and call or wave for help.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
