The National Weather Service has issued a High Surf Advisory for today (Friday 2/26) until 7pm with large waves and dangerous surf conditions and breakers up to 30 feet for the north and Central Oregon coast. The high tide today will occur around noon.
Destructive waves may wash over beaches, jetties, and other structures unexpectedly. People can be swept off rocks and jetties and drown while observing high surf. Severe beach erosion may damage coastal properties and buildings. Higher than normal water run-up is expected on beaches and low-lying shoreline, especially around the time of high tide.
High Surf Warning means that high surf will affect beaches, producing rip currents, sneaker waves and beach erosion. Stay well back from the water's edge and be alert for exceptionally high waves. Keep away from large logs on the beach. Water running up on the beach can lift or roll logs which can injure or kill someone caught in their path.
