A south swell continues to impact the south facing shores of the Hawaiian islands, with surf expected to remain elevated at 6 to 9 feet through this afternoon.

The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory for the south facing shores of Maui County through 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014.

NWS forecasters say a long-period south swell continues to impact the south facing shores, creating strong breaking waves and long shore rip currents that will make swimming difficult and dangerous in affected areas.
