Large waves hit Hawaii

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) — The prospect to seeing waves as high as 50 feet has drawn hundreds of people to Oahu's North Shore.

There was only one report of sand and debris washing onto a roadway Monday morning. There were no reports of structural damage caused by the surf.

The National Weather Service forecast the highest waves to hit outer reefs.

Waves reaching 30 to 40 feet are expected to pound Kauai, Molokai and Maui, as well as Oahu. The islands remained under a high surf warning, as did the Big Island.

On Oahu, officials opened three emergency shelters Sunday. But only six people stayed in one of them.

The high waves are expected to continue through Wednesday.
