Maui, Molokai shores to see high surf
Surf was expected to rise to 12 to 16 feet through this afternoon on the north-facing shores of Maui and Molokai until 6 p.m. today, according to a National Weather Service high-surf advisory issued Saturday.
The surf is expected to create hazardous conditions with strong breaking waves, rip currents and erosion.
The waves were being generated by a strong north-northwest swell, officials said.
