High wind, high tide and low atmospheric pressures combined late on March 9 and early March 10 to bring seawater and debris splashing over the seawall on Bayview Drive in Maple Beach. Gale winds of 35-45 knots and wave heights between 4 and 7 feet were forecasted by the National Weather Service for inland waters from the San Juan Islands north.
