High surf generated by Douglas will batter east-, northeast- and north-facing coasts through Monday.

Coastal flooding is also possible in exposed areas. A water level rise up to three feet above normal tide levels is possible in exposed areas.

Douglas became the first hurricane of the Eastern Pacific season Wednesday, among the top five latest-forming first hurricanes for that basin in the satellite era – since the late 1960s – as noted by UNC-Charlotte graduate student Eric Webb.
