BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH TUESDAY AFTERNOON... * WHAT...Sneaker waves possible. * WHERE...In Washington, South Washington Coast. In Oregon, North Oregon Coast and Central Oregon Coast. * WHEN...From Monday morning through Tuesday afternoon. * IMPACTS...Sneaker waves run up significantly farther on a beach than normal, including over rocks and jetties. They can suddenly knock people off of their feet and quickly pull them into the frigid ocean, which may lead to serious injury or drowning. Keep children and pets away from the surf zone. Keep off of jetties, rocks and logs near the surf zone. If you see someone swept into the sea do not swim in after them. Call 911 and keep an eye on them until help arrives. Stay away from large logs on the beach. Sneaker waves can run up on the beach lifting or rolling these extremely heavy logs. People have been injured after being caught under these logs from sneaker wave action.
