Hawaii, Kona

Areal Flood Advisory

Statement as of 7:00 PM HST on August 20, 2017

Expires 3:00 AM EDT on August 21, 2017


The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a

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

* until 900 PM HST

* at 659 PM HST, radar indicated heavy rain spreading over the
leeward areas of north Kona and south kohala and across the Hilo
and puna districts. Rain was falling at a rate of up to 2 inches
per hour in some locations.

* Locations in the advisory include but are not limited to...
Hilo, Kailua-Kona, and Mountain View.

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 900 PM HST if heavy rain
persists.

This advisory replaces the previously issued advisory that was in
effect for portions of the island of Hawaii in Hawaii County.

Special Statement

Statement as of 3:49 PM HST on August 20, 2017

Expires 11:30 AM EDT on August 21, 2017


... 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.
