12:01pm- Several surfers are stranded on rocks off Otter Rock. They have tried to paddle their way out to safety but a strong incoming tide stopped them. High tide at 1:40pm.

12:03pm- Depoe Bay Fire Rescue calls for Coast Guard helo. Coast Guard reports their helo will be coming from North Bend. 45 minute minimum wait time.

12:04pm- Depoe Bay Fire Rescue activates Lincoln County Rope Rescue Team.

12:06pm- Three surfers. Two on the rocks. One now trying to surf his way back in.

12:11pm- One surfer has made it back to shore.

12:20pm- Surfer on shore says the other two stranded surfers on the rocks have cuts on their feet.

12:23pm- Otter Rock Fire-Rescue can still see the two remaining surfers on the rocks.

12:34pm- More rope rescue team members are arriving on scene. Gathering at Punchbowl.

12:39pm- Coast Guard was delayed. Just now getting airborne. Transit time 30 minutes from North Bend.

12:40pm- Rope Rescue Team still preparing.

12:43pm- Although the helo is finally enroute, rescuers say the wind is blowing possibly too hard to make a Coast Guard helo rescue possible. Rescuers continuing to get the rope rescue team into position to launch their own rescue.

12:50pm- Rope rescue team has lowered down over the cliff and has made contact with the two stranded surfers. High tide is an hour away.

12:50pm- Coast Guard still not on scene. From time of call to arrival will be about an hour. Another example of why the Coast Guard should keep their Newport Air Rescue base open.

12:54pm- Rope Rescue Team is getting the job done. They’ve told the Coast Guard to cancel. They’re probably off Perpetua by now.

12:56pm- Rope Rescue Team continues to retrieve the two stranded surfers.

1:15pm- One surfer is rescued. Bringing up the second.
