"Sneaker wave" caught on video along Oregon coast

Posted: Updated:

The National Weather Service in Eureka, California shared this post and video on Facebook:

Check out this video of a sneaker wave that caught beach-goers off guard near Coos Bay, OR last weekend (courtesy of The Oregonian). Sneaker waves are waves that run abnormally far up the beach after a long period of smaller waves, and can seemingly come from out of nowhere to pull unsuspecting beach-goers into the frigid Pacific waters. This will be especially relevant tomorrow, as an arriving northwest swell will likely result in a high threat for sneaker waves along area beaches.
