From Thursday at 6 p.m. until Sunday afternoon, a high surf advisory issued by the weather service will be in effect. Forecasters warn of strong rip currents, waves capable of washing people into the sea from rocks and possible beach erosion.
A huge storm surge that already produced waves up to 50 feet tall in Hawaii on Wednesday is headed towards California.
