Statement as of 3:49 AM PST on December 20, 2014

Expires 9:00 PM EST on December 20, 2014

noon PST today...

The National Weather Service in Eureka has issued a coastal Flood
Advisory... which is in effect from 8 am this morning to noon PST
today.

* Waves and surf... breaking waves 22 to 25 feet along west and
northwest facing beaches will slowly diminish to 16 to 21 feet
by late afternoon.

* Timing... the large surf will slowly diminish through the day.

* Impacts... large breaking waves along the coast will lead to
increased wave run-up on beaches with waves topping and washing
over large rocks and jetties. These large waves can be erratic
and unpredictable. Use extra caution near the surf zone as these
large waves will be capable of sweeping people into the frigid
and turbulent ocean waters.

.Coastal flood... .

* coastal flooding... high astronomical tides will cause minor
flooding in low lying areas along the Redwood coast. The water
level is expected to peak around 9 feet above MLLW at the North
Spit tide gauge in Humboldt Bay and nearly 1 foot above
astronomical tides outside the Bay.

* Timing... high tide is at 9:43 am at the Humboldt Bay North Spit
tide gauge and up to an hour earlier outside the Bay. Flooding
may begin an hour before and continue for an hour or two after
high tide.

* Impacts... low lying areas around Humboldt Bay will experience
minor flooding including... but not limited to... roadways in King
Salmon and the Arcata Bottoms.

In addition high surf and strong winds will push water much
higher up the exposed beaches. This may impact exposed areas of
Highway 101.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
