Massive wave smashes into beach spectators northwest of Los Angeles

FOX WEATHER: Firefighters in Ventura County said at least eight people were injured after a wave caught ocean onlookers off guard, smashing into their viewing location along the Pacific Ocean on Thursday.

The entire incident was captured on what appears to be a security camera that was pointed to where the sand meets Seward Avenue in the city of Ventura.

According to the National Weather Service in Oxnard, which services a large part of Southern California, the incident occurred as the ocean was around high tide at 11 a.m.

Due to the rough ocean conditions, Ventura County beaches and the pier were shut down, and locals said additional emergency response vehicles were on standby to respond to incidents.
