San Diego lifeguards closed the OB Pier as of 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 10 because of high surf and the forecast of an extremely high tide, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. The tweets noted the pier would likely remain closed until at least through Tuesday, Jan. 12.

However, the pier could be closed longer.

"We don’t know when it (pier) will re-open,” said SDFD media services manager Monica Munoz. “City crews won’t even be able to assess the damage until the high surf and tide abate.” 

It was also reported in SDFD tweets that OB Pier had suffered some damage to the south side of the railing in the outermost “T” area.
