UPDATE The National Weather Service said today a shift in winds lessened the severity of predicted coastal flooding for Westport and area but a coastal Flood Warning remains in effect until 2 p.m

At 9:30 a.m., an advisory said: “A northerly shift in the winds has kept tidal departures a bit lower than previously expected. Tidal departures of 2 to 2 1/2 are expected this morning.”

Instead of predicted “significant” flooding, forecasters said they expected “moderate” flooding.

The Westport Fire Department late Saturday night activated the CodeRed emergency telephone warning system, urging shoreline residents to move cars to high ground in advance of today’s high tide at 11:43 a.m.

Staples Boys Soccer Shuts Out Ridgefield 2-0

The Staples boys soccer team won its biggest game of the year tonight, shutting out Ridgefield 2-0 at always-tough Tiger Hollow, the Tiger’s home field.

The match pitted the FCIAC’s top two teams. Staples’ victory gives them a perfect 11-0 league mark (11-1 overall), while Ridgefield drops to 9-2. 

The Wreckers’ next test is Tuesday, 4 p.m. at Greenwich—against the FCIAC’s third-place squad.

The Westporters’ first goal came less than seven minutes in. Greg Gudis’s hard tackle and Matteo Marzoli’s seeing-eye pass sent Mikey Scott in alone on the keeper. Scott kept his poise, and confidently finished.

WestportNow.com Image
An application is in process for a permit to demolish the house at 39 Coleytown Road, near North Avenue in Westport’s Coleytown area.

Coastal Flood Advisory in Effect

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y.  has issued a coastal Flood Advisory for Westport and area which is in effect from 5 p.m. today to 1 a.m. Saturday. The coastal Flood Warning has been canceled.

The coastal Flood Watch is now in effect from Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon.

Sustained east to northeast winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour over the waters today will result in building seas and surge along the coast, an advisory said.

This, coupled with astronomically high tides is expected to produce widespread minor coastal flooding around the time of the 10:39 p.m. high tide this evening.
