Public warned of hazardous surf


Based on information received from the National Weather Service in Tiyan, Guam, and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center, a large north swell from Tropical Storm Choi-Wan will produce high surf for the next few days.

A high surf advisory is now in effect until 6pm Saturday along north facing reefs.

Expect hazardous surf of 9 to 11 feet along north facing reefs today, Wednesday, diminishing to 8 to 10 feet tomorrow. Surf is expected to remain hazardous through Saturday.

A small craft advisory remains in effect until 6am Thursday.

Fresh winds near 20 knots and seas of 9 to 11 feet will produce hazardous conditions for operators of small craft tonight through Wednesday night. Seas should fall below 10 feet by early Thursday morning.

The general public is being advised to avoid venturing near exposed reefs and beaches, especially those facing north as rip currents will be life threatening. (HSEM)
