COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH HIGH TIDE

Affected Areas on Hawai‘i Island: Kona, Kohala, South Big Island, North Big Island, East Big Island.

Coastal flooding is possible early Friday morning along all shores of the Hawaiian Islands due to unusually high water levels during peak tides.

Impacts of the higher than normal water levels may include flooding of beaches that are normally dry, salt water inundation of typically vulnerable low-lying roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal infrastructure. The potential for coastal flooding will diminish late in the week as the peak daily tides diminish.
