Beach Hazards Warning: Sneaker Waves Possible Sunday
Along the Central Coast and North Oregon Coast Sunday all day there is a beach hazards warning in place from the National Weather Service for sneaker waves. Waves can run up significantly farther on a beach than normal, including over rocks and jetties. Sneaker waves can suddenly knock people off of their feet and quickly pull them into the frigid ocean which may lead to serious injury or drowning. A Beach Hazards Statement is issued when sneaker waves create potentially life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution should be used when in or near the water. Always keep an eye on the waves, and be especially watchful of children and pets.
