The National Weather service said southerly swells generated by Hurricane Eugene are creating high waves for portions of Southern California.
A high surf advisory has been issued for the Ventura, Los Angeles and Orange County coasts from Friday afternoon through 7 p.m. Saturday.
Waves and surf from 6-10 feet are possible with dangerous rip currents on south-facing beaches of Orange, Los Angeles and Ventura Counties and the Channel Islands.
Boating through the harbor and bay entrances at Dana Point and Newport Bay is expected to be hazardous too.
