Coast Guard warns boaters of Chetco River shoaling

SEATTLE — The Coast Guard is informing mariners transiting the mouth of the Chetco River near Brookings, Ore., of significant shoaling due to this season’s storm activity.

The shoal has formed seaward of the southern jetty and into the navigable channel. Depths have been recorded at eight to nine feet at low tide. This area has been observed to be extremely dangerous due to shallow water which causes breaking surf at times.
