...INCREASED RISK FOR SNEAKER WAVES SUNDAY...
A building and powerful swell will provide the potential for
dangerous sneaker waves along the Washington and Oregon coasts on
Sunday. Water may rise further up on beaches than observed within
the previous 30 minutes and easily sweep unsuspecting beach-goers
into the frigid water. A number of sneaker wave incidents and
fatalities have occurred under similar scenarios in the past.
Please use caution if you plan on recreating on area beaches and
avoid jetties on Sunday.
