Hurricane Eugene to reach the coast of San Diego
Large waves from Eugene will reach the coast of Southern California and threaten beachgoers and boaters through the middle of this week.
"Eugene, once a Category 3 hurricane, will slowly weaken over cool water and within dry air over the next few days," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.
While Eugene will impact California with wind and rain, waves radiating outward from the center of the storm will reach Southern California waters.
The increased threat for coastal waters comes following several days of extreme heat in the southwestern United States. While the latest heat wave is past its peak, thousands will still be heading to the beach for relief or summer vacation this week.
However, large waves and rip currents will affect many of the beaches throughout the coast of Southern California. Waves can be large enough to cause considerable over-wash and minor coastal flooding along the beachfront.
If you live or work in the coastal area, monitor the news and weather channel. Follow instructions issued by local officials.
