Rough seas close Depoe Bay, Coos Bay and others. Newport bar is closed to recreational and uninspected boats.
The Coast Guard has closed down ship travel across the Coos Bay Bar, as well as Tillamook and Depoe Bay. Yaquina Bay Bar is restricted but still open for commercial fishing vessels but closed for recreation and uninspected boats. The Coast Guard says they’re monitoring the sea conditions closely and will re-open the bars as soon as it is safe to do so.
As can be seen by the Coast Guard picture of the Yaquina Bay Bar, the jetties are very dangerous places to be and how easily anyone on the jetties could be washed away instantly by a big wave. Jetties are built to aid navigation, not recreation.
