High surf closes Hanauma Bay for third day

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:30 a.m. HST, Jan 14, 2013

Lifeguards and city officials have closed Hanauma Bay for the third straight day because of high surf and strong rip currents inside the reef.

Waves of up to six feet are making conditions dangerous for swimmers and snorkelers and underwater visibility is poor officials said today.

Lifeguards also closed the bay Saturday and Sunday because of similar conditions.

Officials recommend the area is near the Natatorium in Waikiki as an alternate snorkeling area.

It will be a fourth day in a row because tomorrow is Tuesday. This is really a great idea though. What if a Tourist drowns in Hanauma Bay and the city gets hit with a 5.26 billion dollar lawsuit? Then the Train will go up in smoke and into the tourist's bank account, although 5.26 billion dollars is excessive. Tourists will still sue the City though, maybe for $1.95. Too little? Ok make the amount $100 million then. Tourists may wonder why us when we came here for our once in a lifetime vacation that Hanauma Bay is closed. Well, also why us when we had the two recent Tsunami scares? Much better than December 21, 2012. Omg that was bunch of voodoo. The Arizona Memorial is still open. So is the Honolulu Zoo, and BEST OF ALL, The Ala Moana Shopping Center is still open. By the way i read that interesting cartoon in today's editorial section, from your HSA, that i just paid 75 cents (plus tax omg because they cannot get their register fixed), in Doonesbury about the father and son writing professionals. They say just to write whenever nothing comes to mind, because the dad still does not have a pension. Lol invest your money in $1752 gold coins as shown on today's Ad on page A9. Omg the owner of the Star-Bulletin really pulled a fast one by acquiring The Honolulu Advertiser and morphing the two papers into the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. For those of us that looked forward to the back in the day Sunday paper that was a joint publication of the Star-Bulletin and Advertiser, we still like to look at the paper itself because we will not bombarded by all of the Internet ads on the HSA online site. Omg it has started raining Lions and Coyotes, no i mean Cats mad Dogs now here at Laie Beach Park. Let me start driving once again lol. Cya, ttyl, smh, omg, lol. Sorry that is all i know from the text generation !! btw i am trying to see if your algorithm can read all of this fast enough and approve me lol.
