Warnings (In effect)
High water level warning in effect
Chaleur - MiscouIssued 09:53 AM ADT 17 October 2019 Higher than normal water levels are expected or occurring.
An intense low pressure system tracking toward the region will give severe easterly winds this afternoon and evening. These winds will produce waves which in combination with a storm surge will give higher than normal waters at high tide this evening. These water levels will result in flooding along coastlines and potential erosion to beaches and damage to infrastructure.
Coastal flooding is likely, especially during high tide. Coastal erosion is possible in vulnerable areas.
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.
