Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 4:01 PM HST Aug. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a

* flood advisory for...
the island of Hawaii in Hawaii County

* until 700 PM HST

* at 355 PM HST, radar indicated heavy rain continuing upslope of
Kailua-Kona town and across the Hilo and puna districts. Rain was
falling at a rate of up to 2 inches per hour. Heavy rains and
thunderstorms are spreading to other parts of The Big Island,
across the Kau district, and toward Honokaa.

* Locations in the advisory include but are not limited to...
Hilo, Kailua-Kona, Hawaiian Paradise Park, and Pahoa.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to
flooding.

Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due
to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle, or on
foot. Turn around, don't drown.


This advisory may need to be extended beyond 700 PM HST if heavy rain
persists.

Special Statement
Issued: 3:49 PM HST Aug. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flooding possible through mid-week...

Coastal flooding, associated with a combination of high tides and
higher than normal water levels, will be possible through
Wednesday. These tides will roll in on top of sea levels raised
by an eddy moving through the area. Observed water levels around
the islands are running as much as a foot above the values shown
by tide predictions. Visit tidesandcurrents.NOAA.Gov for observed
and forecast tides and water levels in your area.

Peak water levels will occur during the afternoons and evenings.
During this time, you may encounter flooding of beach areas that
are normally dry, inundation of docks, boat ramps and other
coastal infrastructure. Be prepared for salt water covering some
roads.

Coastal flooding will end during the second half of next week as
the peak daily tides diminish.
