Flood-prone areas of the City of St. Augustine will experience higher-than-usual street flooding related to the astronomical and king tides combined with a coinciding nor’easter which is expected to begin as early as Friday morning, November 5. In addition to street flooding, we can expect overtopping of bulkheads, unusually high surf and tides, dangerous currents, and strong winds.
Water levels this weekend are expected to reach and could potentially exceed that which occurred during the September 2020 nor’easter.
Residents and visitors are strongly encouraged to keep an eye on the weather by following the City of St. Augustine Weather Stem at https://stjohns.weatherstem.com/fswncitystaug.
During these conditions, the city would like to remind the public of several safety tips:
Additionally, we encourage the public to use the Report Flooding tool on the city’s website at www.CityStAug.com/ReportFlooding to report flooding and clogged storm drains.
