Winds are easing over the state but are still predicted to remain breezy through Monday. The National Weather Service lifted a wind advisory for the main Hawaiian islands this afternoon, except for the summit of Haleakala.

The winds have also prompted a high surf advisory for exposed east shores where surf of 6 to 8 feet is expected through 6 a.m. Tuesday.

Winds from the east of 15 to 25 mph with 35 mph gusts are predicted through Monday.

The strong winds this weekend are believed to be responsible for a leaning utility pole that shut down Sheridan Street between Makaloa and Kamaile streets near Wal-Mart at about 3 p.m. Saturday.

Police dispatch said the pole’s condition was not caused by a traffic collision, but it  simply began leaning over.
