Narragansett Bay hit high tide just after 8 this morning and it didn’t take long for a couple of coastal Barrington roads to get wet.

Areas of Ferry Lane and Mathewson Road were both reportedly underwater as of Monday morning.

A blockade on Mathewson Road was reportedly washed away by water just before 10 a.m.

On Sunday evening, Barrington Town Manager Peter DeAngelis issued a CodeRed advisory to residents. He said those living in low-lying, coastal areas should consider finding somewhere else to stay as Hurricane Sandy closes in on the east coast.

Barrington Police Chief John LaCross said individuals living in these areas should consider staying with friends, relatives or in a hotel through both high tide cycles on Monday and the morning high tide cycle on Tuesday.

Additionally, Primrose Hill School is open as a regional Red Cross shelter.
