County crews closed the gravel parking lot and pavilion area of Baldwin Beach Park in Pāʻia after high surf overnight flooded low-lying areas.

The closure will remain in effect for the rest of the day, and county crews from the Department of Parks and Recreation will reassess the area tomorrow.

A decision on whether or not to reopen the flooded facility will be made at that time, officials said.

A high surf warning went into effect on Tuesday evening for the north and east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi, and has since been extended through 6 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013.
