Dangerous Surf, Severe Weather Damage, Big Island Fire

DANGEROUS SURF

We're tracking severe weather this morning. Back to back super sized swells are closing in on Hawaii's coastline. Dan Cooke says we're looking at life-threatening conditions and those problems could intensify during high tide early this morning. We'll have live team coverage on the dangerous surf this morning.

SIZING UP NORTH SHORE WAVES

Overnight, Ramsay Wharton has been on surf patrol. She's sizing up the waves and situation on the North Shore. She'll have live reports starting at 4:30 this morning.

WESTSIDE WAVES THREATEN HOMELESS ON THE BEACH

Steve Uyehara is also out live this morning from the Leeward side. That's where the waves could push out homeless living on the beach.

WIND & RAIN DAMAGE

High winds and rain toppled trees, snapped utility poles, and caused boats to run aground. Those powerful gusts could remain a hazard this morning. We're already getting reports of a downed tree blocking the right lane on Waimano Home Road in Pearl City. We'll have traffic updates on Sunrise every 10 minutes and on our facebook page.
