While sunshine and the bright New Year might tempt locals and visitors to the beaches today, be aware that the National Weather Service in Eureka has issued a Beach Hazard warning from 10 a.m. through this evening.

“Beach goers are urged to keep a respectful distance from the ocean and never turn their back to the ocean,” a Facebook post from them states. Their weather page adds, “Intermittent large and dangerous waves may suddenly appear, posing a life threatening risk to visitors along beaches and [jetties].”
