...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM PDT THIS
MORNING...

* HAZARDS...Dangerous rip currents and breaking waves will
  continue through this morning due to elevated surf of 4 to 6
  feet from a long period southerly swell. Locally larger waves
  near 7 feet are possible on south-facing beaches, including Port
  Hueneme, Pt Mugu, and Malibu.

* IMPACTS...There is an increased risk for ocean drowning. Rip
  currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large
  breaking waves can wash people off beaches and rocks...and
  capsize small boats near shore.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Beach Hazards Statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents...longshore currents...sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Swim near a
lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don`t
swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following
the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or
wave for help.
