...COASTAL FLOOD WARNING AND HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK...

.Long period swells from Major Hurricane Michael was resulting in
dangerous rip currents and moderate Coastal flooding along the
mid Texas Coast. Even during low tide, wave-run up was causing
water to inundate beach access roads and cause beach and dune
erosion. Tide levels will increase this afternoon and evening as
we approach the next high tide cycle along the barrier islands.
Thus the Coastal Flood Advisory has been upgraded to a Coastal
Flood Warning. There will be some improvement late tonight and
Thursday, however minor coastal flooding is expected to continue
through at least Thursday Night.

midnight CDT Thursday night. The Coastal Flood Advisory is no
longer in effect.

* COASTAL FLOODING...Water levels are expected to range between
  2.5 feet and 3.0 feet above mean sea level during high tide
  later this afternoon and evening. In addition, long period
  swells will cause significant wave run-up. The next high tides
  at Port Aransas will occur around 547 PM today and 321 AM

  1010 PM this evening. Beaches at the Padre Island National

  some locations being closed or barricaded, allowing no beach
  access. Some beach access roads will be impassible. Items
  along the beach should have already been removed due to the
  incoming wave runup. Strong rip currents are expected along
  gulf-facing beaches, especially near piers and jetties. These
  rip currents can become life-threatening to anyone entering
  the surf.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Warning means that flooding is occurring or
imminent. Coastal residents in the warned area should be alert
for rising water...and take appropriate action to protect life
and property.

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't 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.
