(Oregon Coast) – UPDATES: See latest on these storms at Another Round of High Winds, Floods for Oregon Coast, Portland, Inland

see video and pictures of the storm at the Oregon Coast Beach Connection FB page as they come in.

Yet another round of storms will be battering Oregon, this time with wind warnings and flood watches for Portland and the entire state, while the coast will also get hit with enormous breakers. Flooding is expected in Portland and through much of the inland, and other areas are under a high wind warning or advisory. (Above: flooding near Lincoln City, courtesy the Coho Inn).

Even areas like eastern Oregon, the Gorge and the central mountain region will be looking at winds, flooding and heavy rains.

The entire Oregon coast is under a surf advisory through Monday morning, including towns like Coos Bay, Newport, Yachats, Cannon Beach, Seaside, Manzanita, Pacific City and Lincoln City.

Waves are expected to be at 20 to 25 feet through the afternoon, causing significant risk to anyone on the beaches. Stay off jetties or rocky ledges near the surf. Even most of the sandy beaches will be dangerous, unless they are wide enough to find a place away from the unusually high sneaker waves. Breakers will be at their worst overnight with a height of 35 feet.

The NWS said erosion is possible, and tides will be one to two feet above predictions all the way through Wednesday. This has caused the NWS to issue flood watches for much of the Oregon coast.

“Expect flooding of estuaries and low lying coastal rivers, streams and creeks from an hour or two before and after these high tides,” the NWS said.

A flood watch has also been issued for inland cities like Portland, Eugene, Salem, Silverton and Hillsboro, among others. The watch is in effect through Wednesday and covers all of the Willamette Valley, Portland metro area and the Lower Columbia area. The NWS said clogged drains are likely to be a problem, and slippage of sogging wet slopes is a possibility. Flooding of rivers and creeks is a high probability.

Portland and other valley towns are also part of a high wind advisory through 6 p.m. on Monday, with sustained winds in the 20's and gusts as high as 45 mph.

Yet another high wind warning is in effect until 3 p.m. on Monday for the north and central coast. South winds in the 30's and 40's and gusts as high as 75 mph on beaches and headlands are expected. The NWS said confidence is high that this event will be stronger than this weekend's wind storms, which did not get as large as originally predicted.

The forecast calls for continued rainy and breezy weather through at least next week, although the heavy winds and surf should calm down after Wednesday. While it will be wet, this could be a great time to check Oregon coast beaches for objects and sea life tossed onto land by these massive waves.
