High tide causes flooding in Hampton Roads as coastal flood warning goes in effect for southeast Virginia


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — The National Weather Service says a Coastal Flood Warning is in effect for much of southeast Virginia through the weekend until Monday.

Officials from NWS say tides will remain above normal, and flooding will continue into early next week during high tide.

WAVY News Meteorologist Jeff Edmondson says to expect strong winds all day long. These winds will be from the north at 10-20 mph with gusts around 30 mph.

That wind will also elevate our high tides over the next couple of days which will be during the middle of the day and the middle of the night for the next several days.

Photos captured Saturday morning of the Hague area in downtown Norfolk show cars and sidewalks submerged in water.

In Virginia Beach, the Linkhorn Bay in the Bay Colony area experienced flooding and standing water throughout the day.

Officials opened select city parking garages in Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach for residents to park their vehicles ahead of heavy rains and expected flooding Thursday into Friday.
