40-to-50 foot waves to pound Hawaii

Posted: Updated:

Surf's up in Hawaii.

Oahu’s famous North Shore is expecting 40-to-50 foot waves through Friday.
         
They're driven by an extreme low-pressure system.
         
Many of the beaches have been closed and a big surfing competition was canceled.
         
While the big waves may seem like a great opportunity, officials say the winds would be too dangerous.
         
These are the biggest waves the area has seen in a decade.
