Storm Surge in USA on Thursday, 29 October, 2015 at 04:29 (04:29 AM) UTC.

Description
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. 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. “We get our biggest waves in the wintertime, and we’re leading up to that,” Wroe said. Officials on Hawaii’s Big Island closed six beaches because of dangerous surf conditions, and one beach on Maui was closed after waves flooded the parking lot. Wroe warned spectators to keep a distance from the waves because what seems safe could become deadly in a short time. “There’s a whole host of dangers that come with these waves,” he said. On Oahu, a man believed to be in his 50s died late Tuesday when he and two other fishermen were apparently swept out to sea by a large wave, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported.

There have been no reports so far of coastal flooding as high tides and an arriving swell from a Pacific storm produced big surf along the central and Southern California coast. Waves between 3 and 6 feet pounded some areas where morning high tides were about 7 feet on Wednesday, National Weather Service forecaster Scott Sukop said. Photo: Nick Ut, AP / AP
