I'm looking out in front of my beachfront residence at some of the largest swells I've seen in 5 years I've lived here.
These huge swells are coupled with extremely high tides the next 3 to 4 days around 10 to 11 a.m.
The tides will exceed two meters and upwards to 2.4 meters. Anybody planning on going out into the Straits to go to another island or just for leisure should reconsider their plans. Be extremely careful around Rocky Cliffs and Ledges as these are the type of waves that have killed many people in the past.
Divers, Surfers and swimmers should be extremely cautious of extraordinary strong currents that will be caused by these large swells and exceptionally high tides.
The extraordinary of the ocean right now could in fact trigger and offshore earthquake as well as it has in the past.
As always better safe than sorry.
If you must go in the ocean wait until midday too late afternoon when the swells and tides will be not as strong.
