Sneaker Waves Sunday

National Weather Service (NWS) Portland has issued a sneaker wave warning for Sunday along Oregon and Washington coasts.

According to NWS, a building powerful swell will provide the potential for dangerous sneaker waves. Water might rise farther up beaches than observed and easily sweep unsuspecting beach-goers into the frigid Pacific Ocean.

Sunny skies in the forecast could see a rise in tourists visiting Lincoln City and bring an increased risk for incident.

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 are mentioned in the warning.

Numerous sneaker wave events and fatalities have occurred under similar scenarios and NWS urges caution and to stay off jetties if planning to head to the beach.
