The Westport Fire Department today advised shoreline Westport residents to move their vehicles to higher ground in advance of tonight’s high tide and predicted coastal flooding.
In a CodeRed reverse telephone message, Deputy Chief Robert Kepchar cited a National Weather Service coastal flood warning of tidal surges 3 to 5 feet above normal.
“It is recommended that residences in flood-prone areas move their vehicles to higher ground for the duration of the high tide which is approximately 7:30 p.m. until midnight,” he said.
The Weather Service said wind gusts could reach 60 miles per hour in the evening and overnight period.
