* WHAT….High surf and tidal overflow flooding expected.
* WHERE…North Oregon Coast.
* WHEN…Until 7 PM PST Saturday.
* IMPACTS…A total tide approaching 10 ft will occur at high tide. This will generate flooding of low areas near the coast. Historically, similar conditions in the past have resulted in the minor flooding of Highway 101 near Seaside, Nehalem, and/or Tillamook. Water has covered parts of Frazier Rd, Miami Foley Rd at milepost 1, as well as the intersection near Alderbrook and Possetti road.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Keep 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.
* AFFECTED AREAS: NORTH OREGON COAST
Instructions:
A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents, sneaker waves and localized beach erosion. A Coastal Flood Advisory means that tidal overflow flooding is expected. Coastal residents in the warned area should be alert for rising water, and take appropriate action to protect life and property.
