A beach hazard statement has been issued by the National Weather Service and remains in effect from Thursday morning, April 16, through Friday evening, April 17.

In particular, west-facing beaches such as Kehoe Beach, Abbotts Lagoon Beach, Point Reyes Beach North, and Point Reyes Beach South can be especially dangerous.

There will be an increased chance of rip currents and sneaker waves which can knock people down and pull them out into the ocean.

Be sure to always keep your eyes on the ocean and use extra precaution when with children or, where allowed, pets on leash.
