   EVENING...
...HIGH SURF ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11 PM THIS EVENING TO 4 AM
   PST SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Medford has issued a High Surf
Advisory...which is in effect from 11 PM this evening to 4 AM PST
Saturday.

* Waves and Surf...Breaker heights 30 to 35 ft will diminish to 23
  to 25 feet Friday morning, then to less than 20 feet by Saturday
  morning.

* Impacts...Waves will run up much higher on the beaches than
  normal. These waves will be powerful and can sweep people off
  jetties and other exposed rocks. They can also easily move
  large logs and other beach debris. Bar crossings and the surf
  zone will be especially dangerous due to strong currents and
  breaking waves.

* View the hazard area in detail at

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A High Surf Warning indicates that dangerous, battering waves
will pound the shoreline. This will result in life-threatening
conditions. Stay off jetties and piers since they can be quickly
inundated by the heavy surf. Or...better yet...just stay away.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.
