Sneaker wave warning on Washington, Oregon coasts

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — The National Weather Service says dangerous sneaker waves are possible this weekend on the coast of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Waves as high as 18 feet could unexpectedly reach farther up the beach than expected or knock people off jetties and rocks.

The weather service says people at the beach shouldn’t turn their back on the surf.
