Officials post shark warnings at 2 popular Oahu beaches

HONOLULU (AP) — Ocean safety officials have posted shark warning signs at two popular beaches on Oahu’s south and north shores.

Officials posted new shark warning signs Friday at Kaimana Beach in Waikiki and Waimea Bay on the North Shore.

Officials say they spotted a 4- to 5-foot shark about 40 yards off the shore of Kaimana Beach.

Earlier this month, signs were posted at Kaimana Beach for three consecutive days starting Sept. 16 after two sharks about 4- to 5-feet in length were seen feeding on a school of fish 20 yards off the shore.

Lifeguards at Waimea Bay spotted a 6- to 7-foot shark that was exhibiting aggressive behavior roughly 20 yards offshore, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.
