Exclamation 40-foot waves coming!

UH-OH... according to a Breaking News item in the Advertiser, we've got four-story high waves coming in today:

"The National Weather Service issued a revised high surf warning at 10 a.m. today for north-facing shores on all but the Big Island, saying wave faces on the outer reefs could build to 40 feet later today.
"Coastal residents need to make preparations along the affected shores to protect life and property due to large breaking waves and coastal flooding, forecasters said.
"The high surf warning will remain in effect until 4 a.m. Wednesday. The surf is expected to peak tonight and begin to subside tomorrow."

(Excerpted from the link above.)

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
