Powerful winds sweep Hawaii

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Powerful winds are expected to rake Hawaii this weekend.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the main Hawaiian islands until Sunday evening, saying the winds will be strong enough to bring down tree branches.

The agency also issued a gale wind warning that will remain in effect for Hawaii coastal waters beyond 40 nautical miles until Wednesday evening, which means winds of up to 54 mph are imminent or occurring. A high surf advisory for that time span will be in effect for east facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island. Other coastal stretches are also under advisory through Monday evening.

The service says the state can expect surf building up to 22 feet along some of its shores.
