... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through late Tuesday
night...

* location... coastline from Sonoma County south through Monterey
County. In particular west and northwest facing beaches...
including but not limited to... Ocean Beach... Montara State
Beach... Half Moon Bay state beach... Manresa State Beach and
Marina state beach.

* Timing... through Tuesday night.

* Impacts... large breakers with increased risk of rip currents
and sneaker waves.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazard statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
Rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties... inlets... and piers. Swimmers caught in a
rip current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. Swimmers should always
swim near a lifeguard.

A beach hazard statement for sneaker waves means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of unsuspecting beach
goers being swept into the sea by a wave. People walking along
the beach should never turn their back to the sea. Fisherman
should avoid fishing from rocks or jetties.
