High Surf Advisory Issued Through Wednesday

The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for south facing shores of Hawaiʻi Island through Wednesday, August 18.

A High Surf Advisory means surf will be higher than normal, shore break, and dangerous currents could cause injury or death.  Surf of 8 to 12 feet is expected with the most danger during periods when the tide is highest.

There are no closures currently 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 when entering the water.
