The high surf warning is now in effect until 6 PM HST Thursday.
Surf...along east facing shores...12 to 18 feet.
Timing...east swell building tonight and peaking Wednesday
afternoon. North-northeast swell diminishing tonight. Elevated
surf will persist through at least the weekend.
Impacts...very high...expect ocean water surging and sweeping
across beaches...coastal benches...and lava flows creating the
potential for impacts to coastal properties and
infrastructure...including roadways. Powerful longshore and
rip currents will be present at most beaches. Large breaking
waves and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances and
channels causing challenging boat handling.
These dangerous conditions mean that only highly experienced
persons should enter the water. Inexperienced persons should
remain off beaches and adjacent beachfront areas. Large breaking
surf...significant shore break...and dangerous currents make
entering the water very hazardous. Anyone entering the water
could face significant injury or death.
