A lingering swell is bringing some high surf to east-facing shores of the Hawaiian islands, forecasters say.
The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for east shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, Kahoolawe and the Big Island. The advisory is in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday.
Forecasters said surf will reach 5 to 8 feet through Saturday morning.
Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, choppy waters, rough seas and strong longshore and rip currents which will make swimming difficult and dangerous.

Life-threatening surf is again headed for north- and west-facing shores.
The Honolulu Fire Department has released more than 40 video clips that show the inside of the Marco Polo condominium in the aftermath of last year's seven-alarm fire.
High surf and rising tides have created dangerous conditions for many coastal areas in Hawaii, where erosion has become a major issue.
