Safely enjoy the wild coast

With fair weather on the horizon and school out for the holidays next week, residents and visitors will head to the beach for wave watching and beachcombing. It also means that beachgoers should practice extreme caution

So far this winter, there have been no reports of people in Curry County being swept from the beach by waves. However, several people in Crescent City have lost their lives recently after waves swept them off rocks or jetties. High surf and dangerous beach conditions will remain a constant along our shore through spring.

If you visit the beach to witness the wave action yourself, please practice a little common sense. Sneaker waves can sweep people away in the blink of an eye.

To help avoid tragedy, we offer the following tips when on or near the ocean:

Never turn your back on it. Stay off jetties or any low flat beach. Stay away from edges of cliffs, headlands and rocks were waves are breaking nearby. Never climb on driftwood, especially when waves are high.

The Oregon Coast is a beautiful place in winter. It’s also dangerous. Please be careful while enjoying our wild, wonderful coast.
