Sunset Beach

From KTLA News | December 13, 2012
NEWPORT BEACH (KTLA) - A so-called “King Tide” is being blamed for flooding in several coastal communities in Orange County on Thursday, according to KTLA . The National Weather Service is forecasting high tides along with rip currents for local beaches and all along the West Coast. The alignment of the earth, moon and sun is giving the seas an extra gravitational kick onto the shore, which can cause flooding in low-lying areas. Early morning flooding was reported in Sunset Beach, Huntington Harbor and Newport Beach.

Sunset Beach may soon apply to incorporate as a city but leave its beach in the care of Orange County, a recommendation made by a financial consultant at a recent town hall meeting. At the May 20 meeting, which about 100 residents attended, representatives from Willdan Financial Services laid out three possible scenarios for the seaside community becoming the newest — and smallest — city in the county. In the preferred scenario, which Sunset Beach Community Assn. President Greg Griffin also said he favored, Sunset would take control of the "green belt," a long, grassy strip by the beach, but let the shore remain under county oversight.

The Newport Harbor High surf team suffered its first loss of the season Thursday when host Dana Hills snapped the Sailors' streak of seven wins with a 90-75 victory at Salt Creek Beach. The small 2-3 foot waves at a high tide helped to create a competitive contest, as Newport won the girls short board event, but lost boys short board, long board, body board and girls long board events. Junior Amie Benjamin led the Newport girls' short board team with a second-place finish, while Lisa Evans and Chanel Rosa took third and fourth, respectively, to contribute to the short board win. Daniel Shea registered the high individual wave score of the day with a 7.5 in the short board event.
