The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for north- and east-facing shores of Hawai´i Island through Wednesday night.

A high surf advisory means surf will be higher than normal, shore break, and dangerous currents could cause injury or death. Surf of 6 to 8 feet is expected with the most danger during periods when the tide is highest. 

There are no closures at this time but be aware that beach and road closures may occur at any time.

Beach-goers, swimmers, and surfers should heed all advice given by ocean safety officials and exercise caution if you enter the water.
