SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif. — City lifeguards reopened Ocean Beach Municipal Pier Tuesday, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

On Monday, the landmark fishing and sightseeing structure was closed due to high surf and rising tide levels. Officials say the high surf did not damage the pier.

Big waves at the coast will subside by Tuesday morning. 

Long period west swell generated six to eight foot surf with sets up to nine feet. Beachgoers should be aware of erosion and strong rip currents.
