The Maui County Emergency Management Agency in conjunction with the National Weather Service has continued the “Coastal Flooding” advisory in a report submitted to MAUIWatch.com and to the media in a press release.
The National Weather Service and County Emergency Management Agency wants to remind the public that coastal flooding associated with king tides will be a possibility the next couple of days, especially along south facing shores, where surf will be elevated. They also stated that the greatest potential for coastal flooding impacts will be during the mid- to late-afternoon hours today, when highest tides are expected.
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, the Maui County Emergency Management Agency and County Public Safety officials strongly advise the public to consider postponing ocean activities until these hazards are over. As always, precautionary measures should be taken before night fall.
