Another Round of Powerful Waves Expected To Hit Southern California Coast

Another round of powerful waves expected to hit the Southern California coast prompted high surf warnings and advisories Monday.

A large swell originating from a storm system in the Gulf of Alaska was responsible for the large and possibly damaging surf expected to continue through Tuesday along west to northwest-facing beaches, the National Weather Service stated.

The largest surf was expected to arrive on the Central Coast, where 15 to 20 foot waves were expected, with maximum sets up to 25 feet.

Six to 10 foot surf, with sets up to 15 feet are possible for west-facing Los Angeles and Ventura County beaches.

The powerful surf could be large enough to cause damage to structures such as piers near the Central Coast and near the Ventura Harbor.

The Ventura Pier was damaged in December when large waves apparently broke some of the structures wooden posts.
