A COASTAL FLOOD WARNING MEANS THAT MODERATE OR MAJOR COASTAL
FLOODING IS LIKELY. MODERATE COASTAL FLOODING PRODUCES WIDESPREAD
FLOODING OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND/OR BASEMENTS DUE TO THE
HEIGHT OF STORM TIDE AND/OR WAVE ACTION. NUMEROUS ROAD CLOSURES
ARE NEEDED. LIVES MAY BE AT RISK FOR PEOPLE WHO PUT THEMSELVES IN
HARMS WAY. ISOLATED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE MAY BE OBSERVED.

MAJOR COASTAL FLOODING IS CONSIDERED SEVERE ENOUGH TO CAUSE AT
LEAST SCATTERED STRUCTURAL DAMAGE ALONG WITH WIDESPREAD FLOODING
OF VULNERABLE SHORE ROADS AND/OR BASEMENTS.  SOME VULNERABLE
HOMES WILL BE SEVERELY DAMAGED OR DESTROYED.  NUMEROUS ROADS ARE
IMPASSABLE...SOME WITH WASHOUTS SEVERE ENOUGH TO BE LIFE-
THREATENING IF ONE ATTEMPTED TO CROSS ON FOOT OR BY VEHICLE. SOME
NEIGHBORHOODS WILL BE ISOLATED. EVACUATION OF SOME NEIGHBORHOODS
MAY BE NECESSARY.
