SAN DIEGO – San Diego began to dry off and clean up Sunday after a series of strong Pacific storms pounded the area since Friday.
Along the coast on Sunday, San Diego lifeguards closed the Ocean Beach Pier for a second day. Waves pounded the pier during these storms causing minor damage, according to lifeguards.
The massive waves became the weekend entertainment for local and tourists like Michelle Westford from Seattle.
“It’s…beautiful. Southern California at its finest,” Westford said.
Lifeguards patrolling La Jolla Shores were forced to call in air support to rescue a surfer caught up in the rocks. They have been warning surfers and other beachgoers to stay out of the water, but some people did not heed the warning.
Even though the waves are dying down, county health officials advice people stay out of the water for a few days after the storm to avoid coming into contact with contaminates.
