September to November sea levels and tide tables

Sea-levels around Kosrae are likely to be around 4 inches higher than normal over the next few months.

High tides above 7 feet are expected on the following dates:

  • Friday 3rd to Tuesday 7th November
  •  Saturday 18th to Monday 20th November

During these periods (and possibly the days just before and afterwards) flooding of low lying areas is likely to occur, particularly if larger waves coincide with high tide. Wave overwashing at places such as Paal and Mosral is highly likely.

The tide tables for September, October and November can be downloaded from the links below:

Typhoons: There is only a low likelihood of typhoons impacting or passing close to Kosrae over the remainder of this year.
