Flood warning equipment set up on Majuro, Kwajalein
A new tool is now available that forecasts the potential occurrence of high sea levels and wave inundation for the most populated segments of Kwajalein Atoll. The forecast is updated hourly and accessible to the public on the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System (PacIOOS) website. “Due to the low elevation of the Marshall Islands, communities are vulnerable to flooding and wave inundation.
