In addition, the coastal areas of Pacific County will also be experiencing a series of higher than normal astronomical tides that, when combined with the high rainfall totals may lead to an increased risk of tidal overflow (flooding caused by an abnormally high tide). High tide, in Raymond, will be at 11:33 a.m. on Saturday, 12:16 p.m. on Sunday, and 1:00 p.m. on Monday.
The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency urges everyone to monitor the weather forecast and be alert for potential flooding throughout the weekend. Care should also be exercised by clam diggers taking advantage of this weekend’s clam tides. Waves will run further on the beach than normal and “sneaker” waves can be expected. Do not turn your back to the ocean, and exercise extreme caution.
