August 26, 2014 (San Diego)--The National Weather Service has issued a beach hazards warning that Hurricane Marie is approaching San Diego’s coastline, where strong waves, coastal flooding and rip tide currents may occur now through Thursday night.

The currents could result in dangerous swimming and surfing conditions, according to the weather service. Beachgoers should obey warning signs posted, use caution in and around the water and if you swim, stay near a lifeguard.

In Baja California, winds from the hurricane reached more than 100 miles an hour, though the storm has weakened as it moves north.
