Lamoine Beach...Roque Bluffs State Park...Quoddy Head State Park

* TIMING...Flooding impacts are expected within 2 hours either
side of the high tide cycle. High tide will occur around
midnight Monday night.

* Shoreline Flood Impacts...Significant wave action will cause
minor overtopping of exposed coastal roadways, allowing small
rocks washing up on roads to cause damage to vehicles. Majority
of roads will remain passable with only isolated closures. Minor
beach erosion is possible.

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