Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:50 PM PDT on May 31, 2016

Expires 1:00 AM EDT on June 03, 2016


... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Thursday
evening...

* hazards... strong rip currents and long shore currents will
become widespread as a long period south swell builds into the
coastal waters of Southern California. Elevated surf of 4 to 6
feet will be common across south facing beaches through Thursday
evening... with local sets up to 8 feet across exposed beaches.
Beaches of particular concern are from Port Hueneme to Malibu
as well as Santa Monica and areas near Long Beach.

* Tides... high tides will be increasing each evening... reaching
6.5 feet by Thursday evening across Los Angeles and Ventura
counties.

* Impacts... there is an increased risk of ocean drowning. Rip
currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Sneaker waves
can suddenly wash people off of beaches and rock jetties. The
combination of elevated surf and high tides could generate minor
beach erosion and minor flooding of Harbor walkways by Thursday
evening... possibly persisting into Friday evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats to beach and
surf zone safety are expected or occurring. Caution should be
used when in or near the water. Stay near occupied lifeguard
towers and never swim alone. If caught in a rip current... swim
parallel to the shore.
