...High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 PM PDT Friday...

* surf and timing...surf of 6 to 10 feet...with maximum sets between 10 to 15 feet and isolated sets to 20 feet will occur late this evening...then gradually subside through Friday. The highest surf will likely on south and southeast facing beaches of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

In Ventura County...beaches at or near Port Hueneme...Point Mugu...County line...and Oxnard Shores will be most impacted by the high surf.

* Impacts...this powerful surf event has the potential to produce structural damage to piers and beach side property as well as significant beach erosion. The powerful surf with very strong rip currents and long shore currents will create extremely dangerous swimming and surfing conditions... potentially life threatening. Sneaker waves can bring unexpectedly large waves across rocks and jetties near the Waters Edge...and suddenly inundate beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Emergency and marine interests should begin to take necessary precautions to prepare for the possibility of a damaging surf event for south and southeast facing beaches.

If you do not have to be in the water...stay on the shore. Stay off rocks and jetties and away from the Waters Edge to avoid being swept away by sneaker waves. Never turn your back to the ocean.

Remember...if caught in a rip current...swim parallel to shore until you are free of the powerful current.
