Statement as of 1:17 AM PDT on October 18, 2017

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on October 21, 2017


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect from Friday morning
through Friday evening...

* hazards... possible high surf 14 to 20 feet could develop by
Friday morning and continue through late Saturday evening. A
strong storm in the Gulf of Alaska will generate large swells
with a long period, that are forecast to reach the central coast
by Friday morning. At this point, the peak of the largest surf
should occur Friday evening through early Saturday morning. Surf
will likely begin to decrease by Saturday afternoon but should
still remain above 10 feet through Saturday evening.

* Impacts... large powerful waves and strong currents could
create a risk of ocean drowning. Sneaker waves can suddenly
overrun previously dry beaches and jetties. Flooding of low
lying beach parking lots, Harbor walkways, and campgrounds
could be possible

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Swim near a
lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don't
swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following
the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or
wave for help.
