Vehicles parked in vulnerable areas near the Waterfront will
likely become flooded. Flooding will also extend inland from the
Waterfront along tidal rivers and bays.

beach erosion and flooding along the Atlantic Ocean shoreline,
with minor damage possible to dune structures.

* Timing... around the times of high tide Sunday morning.
