Due to the current ocean conditions, organizers with events near the shore are also urged to relocate or reconsider postponing their events.
Significant wave run-ups on roadways and into properties near the shore were reported over the weekend. Details on repairs and updates to County public structures will be announced later.
Even if you’re not swimming or snorkeling, spectators are urged to use extreme caution since large breaking waves can make it dangerous to stand along the shoreline.
