High surf has caused several closures on east portions of the Big Island.
Hawai’i County Civil Defense says that surf heights are expected to reach 15 to 20 feet along north facing shores and seven to 10 feet along east facing shores. These conditions will peak during high tide.
Onekahakaha Beach Park and Kealoha Beach Park are both closed. Bayfront Highway from Kamehameha Avenue to Pauahi Street is also closed.
A High Surf Advisory is in effect for north and east-facing shores of the Big Island through 6 p.m. Sunday.
Anyone headed out into the water at open beach parks should use extreme caution and follow all Ocean Safety personnel advice.
