High surf predicted until Tuesday
A high surf advisory remains in effect until 6am Tuesday.
Based on the information received from the National Weather Service in Tiyan, Guam, and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center State Warning Point, hazardous surf of 8 to 10 feet and dangerous rip currents will be present along north and west facing reefs of Saipan, Tinian, and Rota until 6am Tuesday.
Large breaking waves can knock you down and cause serious injuries. Strong rip currents can drag you out to sea. Multiple swells generated by distant sub-tropical storm Surigae and a large mid-latitude low will prolong hazardous surf conditions for the next few days.
Residents of Saipan, Tinian, and Rota are advised to avoid venturing out near reef lines facing north and west. Inexperienced swimmers should remain out of the water due to dangerous surf conditions. (PR)
