Big Waves Hit Hawaii, California Closing Some Isle Beaches.

HONOLULU (AP) — The north shores of all of the Hawaiian Islands are under a high surf warning, and forecasters expect 25- to 30-foot waves, marking the start of Hawaii’s big-wave season. SAN LUIS OBISPO (CBS/AP) — Forecasters say very high tides and swell arriving from a Pacific storm will combine to bring the possibility of big surf and minor flooding of low-lying points along parts of the California coast.“The Los Angeles Fire Department and Beaches and Harbors Los Angeles County are working to prepare for the tides and are laying out sandbags in key areas and making sandbags available to residents,” said L.A. The swells hitting both Hawaii and California are probably connected to the same low-pressure weather system in the Pacific Ocean, said Derek Wroe, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Forecasters said the high tides were predicted to range up to 6.9 feet but observations showed they were exceeding that and could rise to near 7.5 feet.

Seal Beach, which is prone to shoreline flooding, continued the weekslong process of building giant sand berms that protect beachfront property from winter storms. The berms were going up several weeks early because of the potential for El Nino-spawned storms, not this week’s event, said Joe Bailey, the city’s marine safety chief. “We’re building it earlier, we’re building it wider, we’re building it longer, and maybe a just a touch taller” than previous years, he said.
