San Francisco, California (Reuters) – The U.S. Coast Guard says it is “unaware of any significant risk” from a single person who goes out on a beach at night, with a high probability of being caught by a nearby person.
The Coast Guard’s Office of Naval Research said on Friday that it has “no information” that a single visitor to San Francisco’s popular beaches is at any risk of being detected by a radar system.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said it was “not aware of any potential problem with a single individual walking out on the beach”.
It said the Coast Guard had no reports of such a person in the past year.
“This type of activity should be considered when the Coast Guardsman is in close proximity to shore, in the midst of activity, or when a single activity can result in multiple reports to local authorities,” the agency said.
