Montauk: Tides Tables /////

The Tides Online page provides users with immediate graphical and tabular water level and meteorological data from NOS water level stations located along the projected path of severe storms such as hurricanes.

Once the National Hurricane Center identifies a tropical storm, CORMS watchstanders begin tracking the storm and reporting its progress to CO-OPS personnel. As soon as the storm approaches the coast, the watchstanders manually call the data collection platforms (DCPs) at stations within the projected track, and trigger the DCPs to transmit data every 18 minutes rather than the typical one or three hour intervals.
