    The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a
    High Surf Warning, which is in effect from 2 PM Thursday to 9 PM
    PST Friday. A Coastal Flood Advisory has also been issued. This
    Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect from 11 PM Thursday to 9 PM
    PST Friday.

    * Surf...Breaking waves of 8 to 13 feet will continue through
    Thursday morning. Surf will increase rapidly late Thursday,
    reaching 12 to 17 feet Friday morning. The surf will begin to
    subside late Friday but high surf condition will persist into
    Saturday morning.

    * Coastal flooding...High tides of 6 to 6.5 feet at 6 AM Thursday
    and 6.5 to 7 feet at 7 AM Friday will coincide with the building
    surf. Minor coastal flooding is possible Thursday, with moderate
    coastal flooding and significant beach erosion likely on Friday.
    In addition, there is a risk of breaking waves across the
    Ventura Harbor entrance.

    * Impacts...There is an increased risk for ocean drowning. Rip
    currents can pull swimmers and surfers out to sea. Large
    breaking waves can cause injury...wash people off beaches and
    rocks...and capsize small boats near shore. Moderate coastal
    flooding is possible over low-lying coastal areas including
    beaches, beach parking lots and harbor walkways, and with
    vulnerable coastal roadways during the highest surf and tides.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A High Surf Warning indicates that dangerous...battering waves
    will pound the shoreline. This will result in life-threatening
    conditions. Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current,
    relax and float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in
    a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
    shore and call or wave for help.

    A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that surf and tides will
    combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
