Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
(October 9, 2012)—Powerful 20-foot plus waves injured at least four people Tuesday at Waimea Bay Tuesday as the first swell of the winter season arrived earlier than usual in Hawaii.
Authorities issued a high surf warning that was effective at noon.
A 23-year-old woman and a 14-year-old boy were taken to the hospital and two others suffered shoulder injuries.
Officials said the surf was just a harbinger of what’s expected to be a challenging winter season.
