Humboldt Bay Closed as Surf Pummels the Coast



The U.S. Coast Guard has closed the Humboldt Bay harbor entrance until futher notice due to the high surf.

Any vessel requesting to enter the safety zone is required to contact the Coast Guard VHF-FM channel 16 between 6:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. or to call the Humboldt Bay Sector at 839-6113 between 10 p.m. and 6:30 a.m.

The closure comes as high surf pummels the coast with breakers expected to reach heights of 25 feet. Read more about Humboldt's weather story here.
