This is a Civil Defense message.

This is a High Surf and Wind Advisories message for Thursday, November 24th.

The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory and a Wind Advisory through Friday morning for Hawaii Island.

Large surf is forecast to impact northeast facing shores of Hawaii Island, from Upolu Point in North Kohala to Cape Kumukahi in Puna.

High surf will coincide with strong gale force winds and spring high tide likely resulting in significant shoreline run-up.

A High Surf Advisory means surf will be higher than normal, shore break, and dangerous currents can make swimming difficult and dangerous.

Sustained north winds of 25 to 35 MPH with gusts of up to 55 MPH are expected.

Winds this strong can down trees, lift canopies, and downslope winds could become accelerated.

Due to the High Surf and Wind Advisories, the following are issued;

Beach-goers, swimmers, and surfers should exercise caution and heed all advice given by Ocean Safety Officials.

Beaches may close without notice.

Secure all outdoor items and be aware of downed trees.

Motorists drive with caution.

Road closures may occur without notice.

Stay tuned to your radio for updates and changes in conditions.

Happy Thanksgiving Day.
