12/11/14: Workers from the City Division of Public Works place sandbags along the cliffs at Palisades Park, to direct water to flow down the pedestrian ramp and storm drain, rather than over the edge of the cliffs causing erosion. A high surf advisory will take effect tonight and remain in force through Saturday, National Weather Service forecasters said. A powerful storm will bring pounding surf along the coast, with the second of two westerly swells reaching the outer waters Thursday afternoon and spreading. Forecasters said the high surf is likely to cause significant beach erosion and flood piers and jetties, low-lying areas and beachside parking lots. They said waves of between 7 and 10 feet are expected, with local sets of up to 13 feet along some west-facing beaches. "Avoid standing on jetties, piers and rocks near the edge of the water," warned an NWS statement. "Remember to never turn your back to the ocean during large surf events.
