Surfers Take Advantage of Storm Swells in Southern California


Surfers in southern California took advantage of unusually large surf in Newport Beach on August 27, where a huge swell from Hurricane Marie was expected to generate waves as big as 25 feet. The National Weather Service issued a high surf advisory, warning that the swell, which has been described as the largest in a decade, would cause dangerous rip tides and possible flooding.
