The CNMI Homeland Security and Emergency Management issued a high surf advisory yesterday that remains in effect until 6pm Wednesday.
Hazardous surf of 9 to 11 feet along west and north facing reefs last night was expected to fall slowly but remain hazardous today, Tuesday. Surf is expected to fall below hazardous levels tomorrow.
The CNMI Homeland Security and Emergency Management is advising the public to avoid venturing near exposed reefs and beaches, especially those along north and west facing reefs as rip currents will be life threatening. Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels, should avoid boating in these conditions. If travel by boat is necessary, exercise caution, especially near reef lines and when entering or leaving harbors and inlets. (PR)
