West Oahu sees effects of high surf, erosion

High surf is taking a toll on Oahu’s west side.

Both Makua Beach and Yokohama Bay (Keawaula Beach) were once again closed.

Meanwhile, some portions of Makaha Beach are starting to erode. Sand even washed up onto Farrington Highway.

“Anybody could just come and get hurt, not knowing not to go there,” said Makaha resident Santos Catian. “You look at it, there’s kind of like metal pieces that’s sticking out of the pillars. That’s a hazard.”

Surf in the area was 15-20 feet Tuesday.

In the past, crews have had to shut down Farrington Highway because the waves got too big.
