Powerful surf pounding California to ease
VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — Powerful, dangerous waves continue to pound much of the California coast.
The National Weather Service says a large, long-period northwest swell that arrived late Sunday has begun to diminish but will remain a hazard through Tuesday.
Forecasters warn there’s continuing risk of large breaking waves overtopping rocks and jetties, strong rip currents and minor coastal flooding of low-lying areas during the morning high tide.
In Southern California, the Ventura Pier has been closed due to a lost piling and bracing. Ventura police say the closure is until further notice.
