* WHERE...In Washington, South Washington Coast. In Oregon,
  North Oregon Coast.

* WHEN...From 1 PM Sunday to midnight PST Sunday night.

* IMPACTS...Destructive waves may wash over beaches, jetties, and

  may damage coastal properties and buildings. Higher than normal
  water run-up is expected on beaches and low-lying shoreline.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Waves can run up significantly farther on
  a beach than normal, including over rocks and jetties. Sneaker
  waves can suddenly knock people off of their feet and quickly
  pull them into the frigid ocean which may lead to serious
  injury or drowning.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches,
producing rip currents, sneaker waves and beach erosion. Stay
well back from the water`s edge and be alert for exceptionally
high waves.

Keep away from large logs on the beach. Water running up on the
beach can easily lift or roll logs which can injure or kill
someone caught in their path.
