UPDATED: NWS high surf advisory for Oregon Coast extended

Lincoln City Waves

National Weather Service Portland extended a high surf advisory along the coast for Thursday and Friday calling for waves up to 25 feet.

A high surf advisory remains in effect until 8 a.m. Friday for the North Oregon Coast, Central Oregon Coast and South Washington Coast.

According to the alert, unpredictable and destructive waves are possible on beaches and jetties with no warning and “this is not a time to be near the water.”

PRECAUTIONARY PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

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

Keep away from large logs on the beach. Sneaker waves can run up on the beach lifting or rolling these extremely heavy logs. People have been injured after being caught under these logs from sneaker wave action.

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.
