A wind-blown wave spews plumes of spray at a surf break known as Ammonia’s in Kalapaki Bay Tuesday, generating high-surf advisories for east-facing shores. The advisory is in force for 8-to-12-foot surf until this morning, when wind speeds are expected to start falling. However, the passage of a low-pressure system will bring the potential for more substantial rainfall and possible thunderstorms starting today.

All of the Hawai‘iUSA Federal Credit Union off-island staff has gone home (great employment opportunities now for those needing COVID-19 opportunities) to tend to their respective families during these “unprecedented” (borrowed from government, health, and business officials) times. The credit union presented donations to all of the food banks in the state to help ensure that no one goes hungry while riding out this little bug.
