Sea level rise-induced flooding threatens Honolulu

"Today and as sea level continues to rise in the future, extreme high tide events cause Honolulu, Hawai‘i’s primary urban center to experience flooding not just from water washing directly over the shoreline, but also from groundwater inundation as the water table is pushed toward the surface, and reverse flow through the municipal drainage system." - Excerpt from University of Hawaii at Manoa
