The National Weather Service in Honolulu has continued the High Surf ADVISORY for Maui’s east-facing shores. The advisory will remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 1.

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  rip currents and large waves breaking close to shore.

High speed winds will bring in rough, choppy surf that will reach 6 to 8 feet on Maui’s east-facing shores.

Maui County Defense will continue to monitor the situation and  provide public updates.
