Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 11:12 AM PDT on March 27, 2015

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on March 29, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Sunday
afternoon...

* hazards and timing... surf will range from 2 to 4 feet occasional
5 feet along exposed west and southwest shores today. Surf is
expected to build along exposed west facing shores tonight
through Saturday night while surf ranges from 2 to 4 feet
occasional 5 feet. Frequent strong rip currents... strong long-
shore currents and sneaker waves will be possible during this
time.

* Tides... high tide around 4 feet occurred earlier this morning
and low tide around a half foot around noon PDT. The lower high
tide is expected to occur each evening with the higher high tide
occurring each early morning through Sunday.

* Impacts... elevated surf will bring strong rip currents and
long-shore currents to area beaches... along with a risk of
sneaker waves. Long period swell also causes more powerful
surf and a potential for minor beach erosion during times of
high tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats to beach and
surf zone safety are expected or occurring. Caution should be
used when in or near the water. Stay near occupied lifeguard
towers and never swim alone. If caught in a rip current... swim
parallel to the shore.
