NEW ORLEANS - Authorities have issued a coastal flood advisory for several parishes near the Gulf coast.

The National Weather Service said the advisory will be in effect until 6 p.m. Monday.

Forecasters say that strong winds over the northern Gulf of Mexico will pile water onto mainly east-facing shores of the Louisiana and Mississippi coastline. They say higher water will be most noticeable during high tide.

The weather service said it expects minor flooding of low-lying areas near tidal lakes, bays and inlets, along with the open coast outside hurricane protection levee systems.
