LOS ANGELES (AP) - Big waves generated by a former hurricane in the eastern Pacific continue to roll onto Southern California beaches but the National Weather Service says the surf has peaked.
Breakers chewed away at beaches again Thursday and provided thrills for surfers and shoreline crowds, but meteorologists say high surf advisories should expire by Friday evening. They continue to warn of potential danger, however.
The National Hurricane Center says the source of the swells, Tropical Storm Marie, is expected to be further downgraded Thursday night as it moves northwestward, some 800 miles off Mexico's coast.
