* WHAT...Surfs of 15 to 18 feet building up to 23 feet by
  tonight.

* WHERE...South and east facing shores of all islands.

* WHEN...through Wednesday night

* IMPACTS...Moderate. Expect ocean water occasionally sweeping
  across beaches, very strong breaking waves, and strong longshore
  and potentially deadly rip currents. Some strong coastal erosion
  is likely. Very large waves may bring some ocean debris onto
  roadways, impact small harbors, and make navigating the harbor
  channel dangerous.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Residents in vulnerable locations may experience flooding. Some
roads in vulnerable, low-lying areas may be closed from
floodwaters. Stay tuned to local officials for any road closures
or evacuations.

Anyone in low-lying areas and vulnerable areas could be swept out
