Weather warnings for Kauai Island

Coastal Flood Statement issued December 07 at 3:50AM HST until December 07 at 10:00AM HST by NWS Honolulu
Now
From 2021-12-07 03:50 to 2021-12-07 10:00

...COASTAL FLOOD STATEMENT IN EFFECT FOR ALL HAWAIIAN ISLANDS... Rough, short period chop along many shores coinciding with astronomical high tides will increase the potential for nuisance flooding of low lying areas and local area roadways this morning. * WHAT...Isolated minor coastal flooding. * WHERE...Low lying coastal areas of Kahoolawe, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu and Big Island. * WHEN...During pre dawn hours. * IMPACTS...Flooding of beaches that are normally dry, minor coastal erosion and saltwater inundation. Submit your coastal flooding photos to the University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program`s Hawaii and Pacific Islands King Tides Project at: PacificIslandsKingTides.org

Instructions:
Avoid driving through flooded roadways. If you are forced to drive through salt water, be sure to rinse your vehicle with fresh water. Move electronics, vehicles or other valuables to higher ground. Monitor vessels to ensure mooring lines don`t get too tight and watch out for overwash around boat ramps. Secure canoes or other watercraft stowed on beaches.

...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON FOR OAHU AND KAUAI COUNTY... ...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON... * WHAT...Flash flooding caused by excessive rainfall remains possible. * WHERE...Kauai, Niihau and Oahu. * WHEN...Through this afternoon. * IMPACTS...Rain events of this size can cause catastrophic flooding and affect areas that do not usually flood. Low spots in roads will become dangerous and impassable due to severe runoff. Debris in streams and gulches may clog bridges and culverts resulting in dangerous flooding. Numerous landslides are expected in areas with steep terrain. Additional heavy rainfall on Oahu could cause severe flooding impacts, as six to ten inches of rain has fallen over the entire island since Monday. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS... - Periods of heavy rainfall will continue across Oahu and Kauai County as a kona low pulls deep tropical moisture over the western end of the island chain.

Instructions:
Be prepared to take action if a Flash Flood Warning is issued. If you experience heavy rain or rising waters, head to higher ground immediately. A Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flash flooding. Flash Flooding is LIFE THREATENING. Do not cross fast flowing water in your vehicle or on foot.

Current satellite images for Kauai Island, United States of America

The location marker is placed on Kauai Island. [More]

The real-time satellite image combines visible light during daytime with infrared radiation during nighttime. At night, the image is not dark as infrared radiation can detect temperature differences. Unfortunately, low clouds and fog are difficult to distinguish from ground temperatures and thus can be almost invisible during the night. Meteosat satellite images for Europe are updated in real-time every 5 minutes. GOES-16/GOES-17 (North & South America) and Himawari (Asia) images update every 10 minutes.
