Unusually Hide Tides Expected to Cause Flooding Along Hawaiʻi Shores
The National Weather Service reported that unusually high tides, also known as “king tides,” may cause intermittent coastal flooding along all shores of the Hawaiʻi Island from today through the holiday weekend.
In conjunction with the unusually high tide, an incoming large south swell is expected to build on Friday and will continue through the Memorial Day weekend.
The expected high surf may further affect high tide impacts resulting in additional beach run-up, flooding and erosion.
Officials ask that oceanfront residents and beachgoers be advised and to be on the alert for possible high and dangerous surf.
As a precaution, boat owners and oceanfront residents should take actions to secure their property from possible tidal inundation and coastal flooding.
Precautionary actions should be done before tomorrow afternoon.
