High surf warning for today

Ocean safety officials are alerting the public of a high surf warning in effect until 6 tonight for north- and west-facing shores.

The National Weather Service reports that large, hazardous surf will create significant shore breaks and dangerous currents. Beachgoers are urged to stay away from shorelines, as strong breaking waves will sweep across beaches.

While the high surf warning is in effect, ocean officials urge swimmers to stay completely out of the water on the North Shore and west-facing beaches. The NWS warns that anyone entering the water in these areas is risking significant injury or death.
