High Tide Warning: King Tides Return
The National Weather Service reports unusually high tides, also known as King Tides, may cause dangerous flooding conditions along all shores of Hawai‘i Island from today, Friday, June 23, 2017, through the weekend before gradually subsiding next week.
Due to the King Tides, be aware that coastal areas, beaches, low-lying roads, boat ramps, and harbors may be dangerously impacted during the afternoon and evening hours.
A below advisory level south swell will enhance impacts to exposed shores. These high tides and swell will cause higher beach run up, flooding and erosion.
Because of these dangerous conditions, the following precautions should be taken; ocean front residents, beach-goers, and boat owners are advised to be on the alert for high surf, strong currents and coastal flooding.
As a precaution, consider postponing ocean activities until these hazards are over. As always, precautionary measures should be taken before night fall.
Special caution to the coastal areas in and around Kapoho during the high tide periods.
There are no closures of roads or beaches at this time, however, be aware closures may occur without notice.
