NWS: Sneaker waves could start off the week

National Weather Service Portland (NWS) issued a beach hazards statement for north and central Oregon coasts calling for possible sneaker waves from Monday morning through Tuesday night.

Sneaker waves can run up beaches higher than normal, causing beachgoers to be swept off their feet and possibly into the ocean. If you witness someone being pulled into the Pacific do not attempt to follow them in. Call 911 and keep track of their position.

NWS reminds anyone headed to the beach to stay off rocks, logs and jetties and keep kids and pets out of the surf zone.
