The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement on possible coastal flooding for all islands of Maui County, in effect from Tuesday through Friday.

Coastal flooding is possible this week along all shores of the main Hawaiian Islands due to unusually high water levels. The greatest potential for coastal flooding impacts will be during the peak high tides from Tuesday through Friday, which will occur before sunrise during the early morning hours. Visit tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov for more specific information about forecast tides and water levels in your area.

Impacts of the high tides may include flooding of beaches that are normally dry, saltwater 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.
