NOAA's Climate Prediction Center has forecasted a third year of La Nina conditions in the Pacific. La Nina is a natural ocean-atmospheric phenomenon marked by cooler-than-average sea surface temperatures across the central and eastern Pacific Ocean near the equator, and the opposite of El Nino, which features warmer-than-average sea surface temperatures in that region
Help us document the impacts of King Tides (the highest high tides of the year). Documenting King Tides can give us a snapshot of what our future shorelines may look like with rising sea levels. Visit the project website, www.PacificIslandsKingTides.org, for peak high tide times at locations across the Hawaiian Islands on King Tide photo survey dates.

Flood Insurance Rate Maps, or FIRMs, are hazard maps published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to support the National Flood Insurance Program. They show zones of high flood hazard (for example, Zones AE, AO and VE as seen below for Waikiki) as well as medium, low and unknown flood hazard areas. Flood Insurance... Continue Reading →
