Honolulu Fire Department and Ocean Safety personnel assisted a pair of one-man canoe paddlers Saturday as strong winds and high surf ushered what is expected to be a windy and rainy three-day weekend.

The two paddlers ran into trouble in windy conditions off Black Point and called for help about 11:30 a.m., according to Department of Emergency Services spokeswomann Shayne Enright. One of the two men experienced fatigue and was brought to Kaimana Beach via jet ski by Ocean Safety personnel.

The blustery conditions prompted the National Weather Service to issue a series of warnings and advisories.
