Point No Point County Park and the surrounding area in Hansville is experiencing flooding due to a
combination of heavy rains and a ‘King Tide’. The storm surge overtopped and damaged the beach berm
located north of Point No Point near the lighthouse, allowing tidewater to flow across Point No Point
Road. Point No Point Park and NE Point No Point Road between Hansville and Hillview is closed. Kitsap
County Public Works and Parks crews have been onsite assessing the damage.
Public Works, County Parks, and the County’s Department of Emergency Management (DEM) are
working together to develop a plan to repair the beach berm in the park. DEM will investigate eligible
relief programs with Washington State Department of Emergency Management. The Red Cross is
offering shelter and cleaning kits to impacted residents. Find more information on resources at
“The required repair work can only be done at low tide making this repair difficult. It may take a few
days to complete,” according to Dave Tucker, Assistant Director at Public Works. “We’re focusing on
minimizing damage, and restoring the berm as quickly as possible,” Tucker added. Work near water
requires permits from Washington Department of Fishing and Wildlife. Jan Glarum (Acting Director of
DEM) has issued a Directors Proclamation of Emergency. That declaration is needed to obtain the
permits needed to perform repairs.
