Storm Surge Closes Gulf Beaches, Some North Beach and Flour Bluff Streets Also Shutdown
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and local partners are continuing to monitor Tropical Storm Beta. The National Weather Service reports the storm forecast has improved for Corpus Christi. However, the City is continuing to restrict vehicle access to Gulf beaches due to seasonal high tides combined with Beta storm surges.
Beach Access Roads 2, 3, 3A, Newport, Zahn and Whitecap remain closed until Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. If conditions improve access roads will be reopened. If the water has not receded, the restriction may be extended. Bay beach conditions show inundation at North Beach forcing the closure of the southbound lane of Timon Boulevard at Burleson Street and the east causeway turnaround to the west causeway turn around due to storm surge. If you are not a resident of this area, police request motorists avoid the area.
The National Weather Service advises dangerous beach conditions and rip currents. Pedestrians are discouraged from visiting the beaches.
The extreme tidal influence has forced the closure of Laguna Shores Road from Glenoak Drive to Caribbean Drive.
