...COASTAL FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH
THURSDAY EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Coastal
Flood Watch, which is in effect from late tonight through
Thursday evening.

* COASTAL FLOODING...Large swells of 25 to 30 feet will reach the
coast Thursday afternoon. Waves this size cause dangerous
conditions on beaches and can flood parts of coastal towns.

* SOME AFFECTED LOCATIONS...La Push.

* TIMING...Greatest impacts will be Thursday afternoon and
evening, roughly noon to 10 PM. Waves will diminish slowly
after that, but will remain above 20 feet through Friday.

* TIDE INFO...There is a high tide Thursday afternoon. If the
biggest waves arrive at the time of high tide, impacts could be
somewhat greater. However, with waves of this size there will
be impacts regardless of the time of high tide.

* IMPACTS...Beach runup by waves will be extensive, and beach
erosion is possible. Low-lying areas near shorelines could
experience saltwater flooding. Some levees and other structures
are likely to be overtopped by the biggest waves. The north
coast is largely a wilderness coast. The only known impact in
the past has been to damage a jetty in La Push.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Coastal Flood Watch means that conditions favorable for
flooding are expected to develop. Coastal residents should be
alert for later statements or warnings, and take action to
protect property.
