Correction: High Surf Warning in Effect from Midnight tonight to 6PM HST Monday


The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a High Surf

Warning, which is in effect from midnight tonight to 6 PM HST

Monday.


* SURF...Building to 35 to 50 feet Sunday and Sunday night,

lowering to 25 to 35 feet Monday along north and west facing

shores of Niihau and Kauai, and along north facing shores of

Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Big Island. Building to 25 to 35 feet

Sunday and Sunday night, lowering to 20 to 28 feet Monday along

west facing shores of Oahu and Molokai.


* TIMING...Midnight tonight through 6 pm HST Monday.


* IMPACTS...Very High...Expect ocean water surging and sweeping

across beaches, coastal benches, and lava flows creating the

potential for impacts to coastal properties and infrastructure,

including roadways. Powerful longshore and rip currents will be

present at most beaches. Large breaking waves and strong

currents may impact harbor entrances and channels causing

challenging boat handling.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...


These dangerous conditions mean that only highly experienced

persons should enter the water. Inexperienced persons should

remain off beaches and adjacent beachfront areas. Large breaking

surf, significant shorebreak, and dangerous currents make entering

the water very hazardous. Anyone entering the water could face

significant injury or death.
