The high surf advisory issued through Sunday has come with a coastal flooding warning with Venice Beach and Malibu especially at risk.

A combination of large and powerful surf and relatively high tides brings a very likely chance of coastal flooding and beach erosion. Minor flooding of low laying beach parking lots is a risk.

Large waves and rip currents will increase the risk of ocean drowning and people are asked to be on alert for sneaker waves, that can suddenly wash a person.

Swimmers are warned, if caught in a rip current, to swim parallel to shore until free.

Currently the Ventura County coastline is being pounded by high waves that have flooded into beachfront homes and damaged the pier there forcing its closure until further notice.
