Hanauma Bay closed; All other beaches open

Posted: Updated:

The Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve will remain closed until noon today.

Marine Officlas say because the nature preserve is a bay, it can create dangerous surges. Officials are keeping it closed as a precaution.

Hanauma Bay is the only beach in the state that remained closed Sunday after a massive, hours-long tsunami scare forced thousands of residents to evacuate their homes on Saturday night.

All other beaches across the state are reported to be open.
