Scott White of Lakewood, left, works with 10-year-old Cooper Sandoval to fill sand bags and protect the home of Sandoval's vacationing grandmother, which sits along the Long Beach peninsula, on Tuesday Aug. 26, 2014. A storm surge event with higher than normal water levels is expected to impact the area sometime between Tuesday morning and Wednesday evening. The surge is being caused by Hurricane Marie in the eastern Pacific Ocean, and is over and above the predicted astronomical tides. (AP Photo/The Orange County Register, Joshua Sudock) less
