Cannon Beach, Ore. - If you're heading to the Oregon coast this weekend, you might want to watch your step on the beach because hundreds of purple sail jellyfish are washing up on shore.
This happens every year, but there appears to be more than usual this time around.
The jellyfish do not sting, but they are smelly and slimy.
"They stick," says Jason Hussa with the Seaside Aquarium. "These things stick to the bottom of your shoes and you're going to be dragging it all over town or in your car or the hotel where you are staying at or whatever."
The purple sails tend to wash up when we get a strong wind out of the West.
