The tsunami advisory extends from San Onofre State Beach in San Clemente, about 55 miles north of San Diego, to Ragged Point, about 50 miles north of San Luis Obispo, according to the National Tsunami Warning Center, Los Angeles Times reported.
National weather officials expect the tsunami will begin to impact the California coast about 4:46 a.m. in Newport Beach and arrive a minute later in the Port of Los Angeles. By 5:06 a.m., the tsunami will arrive in Santa Barbara, and by 5:10 a.m., in Port San Luis.
A “widespread inundation of land is not expected” for these advisory areas. The tsunami is expected to bring strong currents and dangerous waves, and the ocean current may be especially hazardous for several hours, according to the Tsunami Warning Center.
Orange County beaches were expected reopen around 6 a.m. Thursday, according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Los Angeles beaches were expected to remain closed.
