The city has reopened the beach at Hanauma Bay today after lifeguards closed it Wednesday due to high surf conditions.
Despite the reopening, a high surf warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. today for nearly all of the Hawaiian Islands.
The National Weather Service forecasted 15- to 25-foot waves for north and east shores on Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui and the Big Island.
High surf is likely to sweep over roadways near shorelines before ocean conditions subside tonight.
A high surf advisory is also in effect for west shores on Maui and the Big Island.
