Mahukona Beach Park Closed

A high surf warning remains in effect for Puna, Hilo, Kohala and Kona shores today through tomorrow, Hawaii County Civil Defense said this morning.

A high surf warning means there is a threat to life and property from the surf. The highest threat will coincide with today’s high tide at 1:30 p.m.

Due to the high surf warning, the following are in effect:

• Oceanfront residents and beachgoers along the affected shores are advised to be on the alert for high and dangerous surf.

 • Boat owners and oceanfront residents should take action to secure their property.

• Mahukona Beach Park, Kaunaoa Bay, and Coconut Island Beach Park are closed until further notice. Additional closures of roads and beaches may occur without notice.

Civil Defense advises residents to consider canceling or postponing recreational beach or boating activities until the danger has passed.
