An “uncontrolled” wave crashed into the seawall, flooding the area and sweeping people and vehicles up the street on a beach in California. The surge sent eight people to the hospital Thursday, a Ventura County Fire Department spokesperson said on social media.

“Stay away from rocks, piers, docks, and other coastal infrastructure,” the National Weather Service in the Bay Area said on social media. “Never turn your back on the ocean!” Officials issued a high surf warning that was in effect until 3 a.m. Friday in the Bay Area, ABC News reported.

According to CNN, Ventura crews worked through the night to reinforce a mile-long (1.6-kilometer) sand barrier that was damaged by Thursday’s strong waters.

At approximately two meters high, the raised wall helps protect coastal communities. Local officials closed a main access point to the Venturas pier. Some coastal streets in the area have also been closed as a precaution. Some precipitation is likely to spread northward from the Bay Area throughout the day on Friday before moving southward over the weekend.
