High Surf Warning Issued for West-Facing Shores Starting Tonight
The National Weather Service in Honolulu issued a high surf warning starting tonight at 6 p.m. till Saturday, Feb. 26, at 6 p.m. West-facing shores are expected to see surf eight to 12 feet long.
Officials say to expect ocean water occasionally sweeping across portions of beaches, strong breaking waves and strong longshore and rip currents. Breaking waves may at times impact harbors, making navigating the harbor channel dangerous.
Overwash will impact typically vulnerable low-lying coastal roadways, particularly during high tide times.
Large, breaking surf, significant shorebreak and dangerous currents make entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering the water could face significant injury or death.
