"N.O.A.A. makes it clear that this is not the day to go to the beach and gawk at Mother Nature’s fury. Do it from the safety of the bluffs above or at your favorite cliff-side resort or restaurant. Today will be as dangerous a day as you’ll ever see on the Oregon Coast. Probably some of the best ringside seats will be at the Adobe in Yachats. Lots of huge swells, breakers over rocks, huge upward fountains of white water – the works. Restaurants perched right above the waters of Depoe Bay will also provide spectacular views of the power of the wind and sea.
Again, don’t risk being blown off a rock or a hill or a cliff. Respect Mother Nature’s fury. She’s the boss right now." Give Mother Nature a chance for a few of these good storms like this out of the S.W. and the gravel beds should be uncovered for a successful beachcombing season to start.
