Expecting waves as high as 10 feet to pummel the shoreline Sunday, the National Weather Service issued a high-surf advisory for Los Angeles County beaches.

The big southern swell -- a ripple effect of a storm created off the coast of New Zealand several days ago -- is expected to bring dangerous swimming conditions, said weather service meteorologist David Sweet.

“Once those waves are created, they keep traveling until they reach land,” Sweet said. “So we can thank our friends Down Under.”
