SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — A high surf advisory for Southern California beaches warned Tuesday that potential breakers of 10 to 15 feet may cause the largest surf seen in recent years in these areas.

According to KTLA, the advisory was issued for Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara and Orange County beaches, from Tuesday through 6 p.m. Friday, the National Weather Service stated.

“Very strong rip currents and long shore currents will likely create extremely dangerous and life threatening conditions for anyone,” the high surf advisory stated. “Surf this large will have the potential to cause structural damage and significant beach erosion.”
