High Tide & Flooding

Tropical Storm Harvey continues to present a very serious and real threat to the City of Shoreacres. 

At 7:00 a.m. this morning the city is experiencing major street flooding citywide. Overnight the city received 14 inches of rain that has overwhelmed our drainage systems. Tides remain high and the city is under a Flash Flood Warning until 10:45 this morning. 

As we receive more rain, more flooding will occur. Residents in low-lying and flood prone areas of the city may see flooding inside homes. Stay inside. Move to upper floors. Do not go into attics to escape high water.

Stay Engaged  

Stay vigilant and monitor this storm for impacts it will continue to have to our area including heavy rain, gale force winds, extreme tides, and possible tornadoes. These conditions may continue through Wednesday, August 30. 

Please monitor local media for weather updates. Visit the City of Shoreacres' website  to sign-up for emergency notices, updates, and messages from the city.
