Four beach campers who say they didn't know about the tsunami warnings were swept into the ocean by a sneaker wave around 10 o'clock Friday morning. It happened in the pistol river area of Curry County where some waves hit three to five feet in height. County Emergency Services Coordinator Don Kendall says it may not sound like much, but there's a lot of power in that water. The four campers were rescued by volunteer firefighters and other emergency responders. One woman was taken to a local hospital.
