Wild winds and large waves battered Redondo Beach on Friday as the entire Los Angeles County Coast remained under a wind advisory from the National Weather service.

A wind advisory is declared when wind speeds are expected to exceed 35 mph. The wind advisory expired at 4 a.m. Friday.

A buoy in the Santa Monica Bay measured a top significant wave height at 9 feet on Thursday.

At the Redondo Beach Pier and King Harbor, big waves crashed onto the beach and over the sea wall. The high winds blew down many trash cans at Veteran's Park next door.
