HILO, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Rough waves over the weekend forced the closures of some beach parks on the Big Island until further notice, according to officials.

The following beaches are closed as of Monday:

  • Onekahakaha Beach Park
  • Kealoha Beach Park
  • Bayfront Canoe Area

An area of low pressure to the north of the Hawaiian islands created some hazardous surf conditions, even prompting a High Surf Advisory over the weekend.
