...SNEAKER WAVES POSSIBLE ON BEACHES TUESDAY...

There will be an increased chance for sneaker waves on beaches
during the day Tuesday. Sneaker waves run up on the beach
significantly farther than average waves. These waves can
knock people and pets off their feet and sweeping them into the
ocean. Beachgoers should stay off rocks and logs on the beach as
sneaker waves can move these large objects. People have been
seriously injured in the past when a sneaker wave causes a rock or
log to roll onto them.
