Watches & Warnings

Lakeshore Flood Warning
Issued: 3:57 PM EDT Oct. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Lakeshore Flood Warning remains in effect until 10 PM EDT this
evening...

* winds... gusts around 50 mph out of the northwest, gradually
subsiding tonight.

* Waves... 10 to 14 feet, highest south of Grand Haven, gradually
subsiding tonight.

* Impacts... significant dune and Bluff erosion continuing into the
evening. Low-lying areas and parking lots along the immediate
Lakeshore will experience flooding. Water will be pushed back
into channels and river mouths.

* Details... as of 4 PM, peak wind gusts of 45 to 55 mph continue
to be reported by wind instrumentation sited at the immediate
Lakeshore, including Big Sable Point and the Muskegon and South
Haven piers. The buoys at Port Sheldon and South Haven have both
recorded 12 foot waves today but now appear to have reached
their maximum.

* Timing... winds and waves will gradually subside tonight, but
significant dune, beach, and Bluff erosion will continue
through this evening. Wave heights are not expected to fall
below 6 feet until after daybreak Thursday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Residents on or near the shore in the warned area should take
appropriate action to protect life and property. Much of the
Lakeshore has already experienced significant erosion from high
water levels and wave action, and the current high waves will
continue to eat away at property along the coast.

Stay away from piers, breakwater walkways, and Lakeshore Parks to
prevent being swept into the lake. Avoid flooded parking lots and
roadways. Watch for falling tree limbs.




Wind Advisory
Issued: 3:58 PM EDT Oct. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Wind Advisory remains in effect until 10 PM EDT this evening...

Hazardous weather...

* wind gusts of 45 to 55 mph out of the northwest. The strongest
   winds are occurring along the immediate Lake Michigan
   shoreline.

Impacts...

* scattered power outages are possible mainly for the western
   half of the Lakeshore counties.

* Small tree limbs may fall especially in exposed areas along
   the shoreline.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Winds this strong can make driving difficult... especially for
high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
