HAPUNA BEACH, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow)- -
Hapuna Beach at Hapuna Beach State Park is closed for the morning due to unsafe surf and water conditions.
DLNR officials say the surges from the ocean are going too far up on shore and may cause problems for people. Ocean waves are reportedly 10-12 feet and the water is going as high as the vegetation on the northern end of the beach.
Lifeguards from Hawaii County Ocean Safety will inform the DLNR Division of State Parks it is safe to reopen the beach later today.
