18 foot shark sighted in waters off Cambria
September 5, 2011
An approximately 18-foot shark sighted in the waters off Cambria prompted authorities to post warning signs along the beach.
Cal Fire officials determined the report to be a credible sighting of a shark 50 yards off Leffingwell Landing. As a precaution, officials posted warnings signs along the beach that are slated to remain in place for three days.
Nevertheless, the beach is still open and some surfers and swimmers are not letting the warnings keep them out of the water.
Sunday’s shark sighting is the sixth credible report of a shark in the waters off of San Luis Obispo County in less than two months.
