Ocean Beach Pier to Remain Closed for Repairs After Damage from High Surf

#1
Welp, this is not good, another day another California pier down:
The Ocean Beach Pier will remain closed “until further notice” after several days of high surf damaged the popular pier.

The pier was closed at 10:15 a.m. on Thursday as an approaching Pacific storm pushed waves increasingly higher, eventually reaching 12 feet on Friday.

Four casualties and counting so far...

Pretty depressing time. There's some obvious damage but what is now going to be needed to be checked is the pilings themselves which already are a big concern to the city. Hard to say when that will happen given the stormy weather.
