Surf could hit 40 feet off Maui, Molokai

The Maui News

Waves of up to 40 feet could hit Maui and Molokai’s north shores over the weekend, putting both islands under a high surf warning through 6 a.m. Sunday.

The National Weather Service predicted waves of 30 to 40 feet along north-facing shores of both islands, as well as surf of 20 to 30 feet along west-facing shores of Molokai.

Impacts may include ocean water occasionally sweeping across portions of beaches, very strong breaking waves and strong longshore and rip currents, the weather service said. Breaking waves may occasionally impact harbors, making navigating the harbor channel dangerous.
