Hanauma Bay closed after jellyfish influx

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:23 a.m. HST, Jan 26, 2014

An influx of box jellyfish prompted the City to close Hanauma Bay Saturday.

According to Ocean Safety spokeswoman Shayne Enright, lifeguards counted over 50 box jellyfish onshore and more than 30 people were stung.

Ocean Safety officials will re-evaluate the beach Sunday to determine if it should be closed another day.

Beachgoers going to other south shore beaches on Oahu should also exercise caution.

It is completely inappropriate for the government to close a public park simply because a form of animal has invaded the waters. Post a sign at the entrance warning of the dangers but please do not block off public aina because you think some visitors do not understand personal responsibility and accountability...
