The following information was released by the Seal Beach Police Department.
The Seal Beach Lifeguard Department is advising residents of Seal Way of the possibility of minor to moderate water runoff due to a combination of two large ocean swells that will impact Seal Beach Saturday through Monday. It is unlikely that the intensity of the swell will result in any significant damage, but there is a reasonable chance that water may reach portions of the boardwalk during the strongest surf which is projected Sunday during midmorning hours. The tides during this event are not anticipated to be a major factor. They are as follows:
Sunday April 1 4.3′ at 5:31 a.m. 3.9′ at 7:23 p.m.
Monday April 2 4.6′ at 6:31 a.m. 4.3′ at 7:45 p.m.
Surfline has forecast the surf in this time period to be the following heights:
Seal Beach 9 to 15 feet
Surfside 15 to 21 feet
The swell is anticipated to diminish Monday afternoon and return to normal level in the following days.
As a precaution, sand bags have been made available for residents at Seal Beach Lifeguard Headquarters.
