AP PHOTOS: Storm-roiled waves hit beach towns

SEAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Big waves turned into floodwaters Wednesday along the Southern California shore as Hurricane Marie stirred up the surf from far asea. Beachfront properties were inundated with saltwater, and the storm-roiled Pacific knocked out a piling at Malibu Pier. The sea breached oceanfront walls to flood streets and homes. Both Tuesday and Wednesday, beachgoers reveled in the big waves at The Wedge in Newport Beach, with crowds egging on bodysurfers brave enough to take on the big surf. Lifeguards on both sea and shore kept a watchful eye on the crowd. Here is a collection of photos of the storm's shoreline impact. ___ Follow Associated Press photographers and photo editors on Twitter: http://apne.ws/15Oo6jo .
