HANALEI — Ocean Safety officials on Saturday alerted the public about a high surf warning scheduled to take effect at 6 p.m. for all north- and west-facing shores.
The warning is expected to continue until noon, Monday, a county news release states.
Officials anticipate extremely high surf and hazardous ocean conditions from Hanalei to Kekaha with waves expected to rise up to 35 feet.
While the high surf warning is in effect, beachgoers are urged to stay completely out of the water on the North Shore and at west-facing beaches.
Coastal residents should make preparations to protect life and property from large waves and possible flooding, the release states.
Officials are also reminding residents that a brown water advisory remains in effect for all Kaua‘i beaches. The state Department of Health has issued a warning for people to stay out of flood waters, storm water runoff and coastal waters that have turned turbid and brown.
