A high surf advisory remains in effect for the coast to 3 am Thursday.
Waves will build 20 to 23 feet.
The large waves are expected to arrive later today producing rip currents and localized beach erosion.
It is extremely dangerous to fish or observe waves from rocks during these high surf conditions. Unwary beach walkers can be caught off guard as waves race farther up the beach than normal.
Deputy Director of Emergency Management Chuck Wallace reminds residents to “Never turn your back on the sea.”
