PACIFIC CITY, Ore. - The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is asking people to be aware of their surroundings while on the shoreline.

Officials said coastal threats can come in the form of powerful waves, unstable logs on beaches and erosion of rocks and cliffs.

They said people should always keep an eye on the ocean so you're not caught off guard by a sneaker wave.

They also warn to stay away from logs on the wet sand or in the surf, and that they can weigh several tons and can be moved by only a few inches of water.

Also, officials ask you be aware of the tides so you're not left stranded.
