NWS extends beach hazards statement as high tides flood streets, parking lots in Seal Beach

High tides continue to roll into Southern California, causing problems in low-lying coastal areas in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties.

The National Weather Service issued a beach hazards statement for Thursday and extended it to Friday after Seal Beach once again experienced overnight flooding. The weather advisory also applies to the Catalina and Santa Barbara Islands and the Malibu coast.

Video from Seal Beach shows crews scrambling to pile up sand and build berms to keep flooding to a minimum. 

The threat of minor coastal flooding remains with dangerous rip currents and high tides expected to reach between three and eight feet due to elevated surf. 

The NWS warns when a beach hazard statement is issued, the public should watch out for dangerous swimming and surfing conditions and remain out of the water.
