Sneaky Waves

National Weather Service Portland (NWS) has issued a warning for sneaker waves Christmas Day as a powerful westerly swell moves in on Oregon and Washington coasts.

NWS BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT

Sneaker waves are possible Christmas morning until late in the afternoon for the central and north Oregon Coast and could cause waves to run up significantly farther on beaches than normal.

NWS advises beachgoers should avoid logs, rocks and jetties where sneaker waves can knock people off their feet and pull them into the frigid ocean, which can lead to serious injury or death.

Please keep children and pets close and away from the surf zone and if you see someone swept into the sea, do not swim in after them. Call 911 and keep an eye on them until help arrives.

  1. Thanks for the warning. How about a story on how our local outlets and small businesses in town did financially for the holiday shopping season?
