...COASTAL FLOODING EXPECTED WITH RECORD-LEVEL KING TIDES AND
ELEVATED SURF ALONG SOUTH FACING SHORES...

Coastal flooding is likely through Memorial Day due to a
combination of elevated sea levels, seasonal King Tides and a
large south swell. The flooding is likely to be worst during the
evening high tides.

The following are the times for the evening high tides at
Honolulu.

5/28 Sunday 6:46 PM
5/29 Monday 7:40 PM

A High Surf Advisory remains in effect for south facing shores of
all islands through Sunday afternoon.

The combination of higher than normal sea levels and king tides
will cause coastal flooding along all shores. Flooding will likely
be most extensive along south facing shores due to the large south
swell. Beaches that normally remain dry during high surf events
along south shores will flood during this event since the south
swell will be rolling in on top of the elevated sea levels. Ocean
water may also inundate roads, docks, boat ramps and other
shoreline infrastructure.

The south swell and the king tides will gradually subside through
the middle of next week. Elevated sea levels are expected to
continue, so the flooding threat may be repeated during the times
of the highest tides over the next couple of months. Please visit the
website tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov for more information about
water levels in your area.
