[ARCHIVED] Wind speeds lower, one more high tide

Oct. 5, 2015 - Hampton still faces one more high tide with the potential for serious flooding, but forecasters are lowering projections, as the wind speeds have declined from earlier peaks.
The Monday afternoon high tide, earlier projected to be 6.3 feet, should be under 6 feet, say forecasters. However, it will cause some roads to flood leading up to -- and following -- the 4:18 p.m. peak, which will affect rush hour.
Sunday afternoon's high tide -- 6.5 feet -- closed parts of 44 streets, according to police reports.
Hampton remains under a coastal flooding advisory through Monday evening. Tuesday may see minor flooding in tidal areas, but Wednesday's water levels should be back to normal.
Hampton has received no reports of water in homes; affected residents are urged to report damage to the 311 call center (727-8311).
Trash and recycling collection will continue on schedule, unless individual roads cause problems.
