LOS ANGELES (AP) — Advisories for high surf along the Southern California coast have been canceled for all but Orange County as remnants of a former hurricane diminish in the eastern Pacific.

The National Weather Service say the remaining high surf advisories will end at 8 p.m. Friday, but surfers and swimmers should use caution because of large waves still rolling ashore on some beaches and the likelihood of strong currents.

Huge surf battered the coast starting late Tuesday when swells arrived from then-Hurricane Marie spinning off the coast of Mexico.

The swell peaked Wednesday with some of the biggest surf seen along Southern California in years. Seal Beach homes experienced minor flooding, piers lost pilings, a lifeguard building was lost to breakers and significant damage occurred at a Santa Catalina Island boatyard.
