For the North Oregon coast, one of the more susceptible areas for flooding is along Fraser Road in Tillamook County. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Coastal Flood Advisory for Minor Tidal Overflow indicates that coastal and inland flooding of low lying areas is expected due to elevated river levels combined with high astronomical tides. Property damage can occur, but is usually localized. Low-lying roads may be closed due to high water. && $$
