High Surf Advisory extended for Big Island as Olaf moves farther away from state

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A hurricane far to the east of the Big Island has brought large surf to the islands, prompting a high surf warning and several advisories for the Hawaiian islands.

Most of the advisories have been dropped except for the Big Island, which is still getting large surf, according to the National Weather Service.

A High Surf Advisory has been extended until 6 p.m. Monday. Forecasters said surf will be between 6 and 10 feet along east-facing shores.

Officials said beachgoers should expect strong breaking waves, shore break and strong longshore and rip currents that will make swimming difficult and dangerous.
