Police Scotland are advising members of the public not to enter the piers or attend at the breakwater at Stonehaven Harbour.
Current strong winds and surges as of 2pm coupled with an imminent high tide, mean that there is a serious risk to life.
Access to the harbour area is limited, with waves breaking over the sea wall at Shorehead.
A spokesperson for Aberdeenshire Council said: “Areas all along the seafront have been affected by coastal flooding overnight.
“With a flood warning in place around high tide today we ask that people avoid the area. ”
