High Surf Advisory
North Oregon Coast-Central Oregon Coast-South Washington Coast-
940 PM PST Thu Jan 18 2018


The National Weather Service in Portland has issued a High Surf
Advisory, which is in effect until 3 PM PST Friday.

* Impacts...Breaking waves will continue to run-up beaches much
higher than normal. Waves will likely break over jetties much
closer to shore than usual. Large driftwood logs can easily be
carried by the high surf. Injuries or death is possible to those
near or on the logs.

* HIGH SURF...Large ocean swell around 21 to 23 feet will continue
tonight, then subsiding below 20 feet Friday afternoon.

* COASTAL FLOODING...The threat of coastal flooding and
significant beach erosion has ended.


A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach

It can be very dangerous to venture near the coast under high
surf conditions. People at times are swept off rocks and jetties
and drown while observing high surf. Stay well back from the
waters edge and be alert for the exceptionally high wave.
