Police along the coast advised people to remain cautious on the beach at all times and to watch for rising waves. The National Weather Service announcements suggest a return to standard activity.
The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department said all state parks are reopening and returning to normal operating hours.
The warning was issued after the massive earthquake hit Japan on Thursday night (Japan time) and created a tsunami that rolled across the Pacific Ocean.
Sirens were sounded in several coastal cities to alert residents and evacuation shelters established in Cannon Beach, Seaside and the Lewis and Clark area, according to emergency managers.
