Original post: The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a high surf warning in effect for the east-facing shores of Kaua‘i until 6 a.m. Thursday, March 2.
Surf of 10 to 15 feet is forecast for the east-facing shorelines of the island. Expect very strong breaking waves and powerful currents. Waves breaking in channel entrances could make navigating the channels dangerous.
People are advised to stay away from the shoreline along the affected coasts. Be prepared for road closures. Postpone entering or leaving channels affected by the high surf until the surf subsides.
