A High Surf ADVISORY has been issued by the National Weather Service in Honolulu for Maui’s east facing shores. The advisory will remain in effect until 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 25.
A High Surf Advisory means that beach-goers are urged to stay out of the water and away from the shore to avoid being compromised by deadly rip currents and large, dangerous waves breaking close to shore.
Surf along Maui’s east coast is expected to range between 5 and 8 feet through Saturday.
Maui County Defense will continue to motor the situation and provide necessary updates.
