El Nino in full force, denies coast access December 2015 stats

Jan 1, 2016

El Nino is still in full force. December saw 40 ft swells on the buoys and averaged 19ft for every day, These are the December 2015 stats showing the maximum surf height at the Newport Buoy (46050) 20 miles off the Oregon Coast. Very impressive.

The rain storms were so bad that living conditions in Tillamook was compared to Water World. Many highways destroyed by flood, including the 101 in Nehalem. Oceanside was cut off from civilization for a few days. Meanwhile, wind sensors recorded 6 days of winds over 50 knots and 16 days over 40 knots. Ouch. Supersize oregon coast.
