At around 10:00 am this morning, an extremely large rogue wave struck a residence along Sherwood Drive, causing damage to the property and minor injuries to the occupant of the room. The homes waterfront windows were shattered and the resident was knocked over by the powerful wave. The water damage extended throughout the home.
Cambria CSD Fire Department, Cambria Healthcare District Ambulance, and Cal Fire all responded to the scene. The patient declined transport to the hospital and is expected to fully recover.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the dangers that exist along the Cambria coastline. We have one of the most gorgeous beachfronts, but with that beauty comes a need to be vigilant of changing water and weather conditions. The recent weather event has brought high tides and waves to Cambria and everyone should take extra caution near the coastline.
