The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a
high surf advisory... which is in effect from 4 PM Thursday to
9 PM PST Tuesday. The beach hazards statement has been cancelled.

and breaking waves on rocks and jetties. Damage to piers is
possible on Saturday... as well as coastal flooding of beach
parking lots and walkways. Ventura Harbor will have breaking
waves across the entrance.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf and rip currents will
make swimming and rock jetties dangerous.

Remember... swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current
remain calm. Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction
following the shoreline. When out of the current, swim back to
shore. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
current. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for
help.
