High surf warning remains in effect for west-facing shores


A high surf warning remains in effect for west-facing shores of the Big Island, according to forecasters.

Waves ranging in height from 10 to 15 feet are forecast for the Kona and Kohala coasts, according to the National Weather Service in Honolulu. The warning remains in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday.

The service categorized the surf’s impact as “high” warning that waves may sweep across portions of beaches and roadways may see overwash. It also noted that breaking waves may impact harbors making navigating the harbor channel dangerous.

The service said entering the water is “very hazardous,” and, “anyone entering the water could face significant injury or death.”
