Flood advisory for Oahu canceled

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has canceled a flood advisory for Oahu.

As of 11:15 a.m. this morning, radar indicated heavy rain over Windward Oahu falling at a rate of up to 2 inches per hour, with the heaviest downpours near Laie and Ahuimanu.

More heavy rain was expected over windward areas in the vicinity of the Koolau mountains throughout the afternoon.

In addition, the combination of higher than predicted ocean water levels and high astronomical tides will produce nuisance coastal flooding during high tide times, which may result in the flooding of beaches that are normally dry and some minor coastal erosion.

Tides running around a half a foot above normal will cause salt water inundation of typically vulnerable low-lying roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal infrastructure.

Early week high tides will occur during the early morning hours. Visit tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov for more information.
