Record Flooding On Chesapeake Bay Slowly Receeding


Saturday October 30 2021

The storm that blew through on Friday had brought strong winds and the expected line of heavy rain during the afternoon and evening. But the hardest impact of that event has been and continues to be on the Chesapeake Bay and tributaries. A few spots have hit Record Flood Stage from Havre de Grace to Solomons Island. Other areas may have not reached their highest levels, but flooding ranged from Moderate to Major.

Flooding remains an issue this morning primarily because the high water is being held in place with winds from the south.  They are not as strong, but limits the tide flowing out.  Gradually that will improve.

This post is a focus on the Bay flooding and forecast water levels. I will have a full weather report to follow.

Water Levels: Observed and Forecast

Selected stations from North to South

Havre de Grace – just .21 Ft below flood stage record at 5.8 Ft in Isabel.

Moderate Flood Stage: There has been damage on the promenade




Baltimore at Fort McHenry – Observed + 4.92 Ft was thankfully below the forecast 5.5 to 6 Ft, and not the record of 8.12 Ft seen with Isabel. It was bad, but why I hesitated to correlate with that hurricane.

Moderate Flood Stage




Annapolis- The Severn River reached 4.49 Ft, well below the record of 7.2 Ft.

Moderate Flood Stage


Cambridge – The Chesapeake Bay stayed 1 Ft below the record, but flooding did reach inland on Delmarva with some rivers to places like Salisbury.

Major Flood Stage



Solomons Island – The Patuxent River set a new record of 4.82 Ft earlier today.

Almost Major Flood Stage


This is where we saw the photo of docks being destroyed.



Coastal Flood Warnings and Advisories



Wind Forecast

10 AM Saturday to 6 PM Sunday

Winds remain light, but from the South today. That will hold water levels high, but they will slowly recede. The winds will shift and help with improvement on Sunday.  Here we see the wind flow forecast.
