The National Weather Service has issued a high-surf warning for the north-facing shores of Maui and the north- and west-facing shores of Molokai through 6 p.m. Monday.
A high-surf warning indicates that battering waves will pound the shoreline. This will result in very dangerous swimming conditions and deadly rip currents.
The northwest swell will continue to build Sunday. Extra large surf is expected along exposed north- and west-facing shores as this swell peaks Sunday and begins a slow decline.
Surf will be 20 to 30 feet for north-facing shoresand 15 to 20 feet for west-facing shores.
People are urged to stay out of the water and away from the shore break, due to hazardous wave action and strong rip currents.
