Meteorologists said Tuesday that waves up to 15 feet high generated by a Pacific Ocean hurricane will hammer Southern California beaches in coming days, creating dangerous conditions for beachgoers and threatening coastal flooding. National Weather Service weather specialist Stuart Ceto said that Hurricane Marie, a Category 2 storm located about 550 miles southwest of Mexico’s Baja California, will generate the big swells even though it is moving away from the U.S. West Coast. A Weather Service advisory on Tuesday warned of life-threatening surf and rip current conditions as a result of the wave swells in Southern California, and the possibility of minor coastal flooding.
