Neptune has aimed His mighty El Niño trident at Pacifica, closing the area to visitors and striking fear in the watery hearts of the local fisherpeople.

Per ABC 7, the pier was closed yesterday and a high surf warning is in effect until 2 p.m. today.
One resident told the channel that "[the waves] hit here... and they went up and over the street hitting, splashing [a] garage. If you seen them they were 10 feet above me, the splash, not the whole wave. It hit and it just threw water all over."
The waves have been estimated to be 20 feet in height in some cases.
