National Weather Service Portland has issued a Special Weather Statement for possible sneaker waves in Lincoln City and Oregon Coast beaches Tuesday.

Sneaker Wave Lincoln City

There will be an increased chance of sneaker waves that can run up on the beach further than average waves. These waves can knock people and pets off their feet and sweep them into the ocean.

The alert is issued for the North Oregon Coast, Central Oregon Coast and South Washington Coast for the cities of Astoria, Cannon Beach, Tillamook, Netarts, Pacific City, Lincoln City, Newport, Cape Foulweather, Yachats, Florence, Raymond, Long Beach, Ocean Park, Naselle, Cathlamet and Cape Disappointment.

People on the beach should avoid climbing rocks and logs as a sneaker wave can move these large objects. Beachgoers have been injured in the past when sneaker waves have rolled logs and rocks onto them.
