HIGH SURF WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 11 PM  OCTOBER 25, 2021

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 water. STAY OFF JETTIES.
