The National Weather Service continues the High Surf Warning for north- and east-facing shores of the Big Island through Sunday evening.

A High Surf Warning is issued when very strong breaking waves and strong longshore and rip currents will affect the coastline.

Due to the Warning, the following are issued:

  • County beach parks are open.  Beachgoers, Swimmers, and Surfers should heed the instructions of Ocean Safety Personnel.
  • Do not enter the water as dangerous currents make entering the water hazardous.

Bayfront Highway remains closed.
