The next razor clam dig is likely to begin as scheduled on Nov. 5 if preliminary test results are an indication.

Released this afternoon, the results from the first round of tests show clams at all five beaches are safe to eat.

The second round of testing for domoic acid and PSP is scheduled for Wednesday with results likely available by Monday.

If tests show the clams are safe to eat, the second dig of the 2010-11 season will be open Nov. 5-6 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks and Kalaloch. Twin Harbors will be open Nov. 7-8 as well.

The low tide times are: Nov. 5, 6:41 p.m., -1.4 feet; Nov. 6, 7:26 p.m., -1.6 feet; Nov. 7, 7:11 p.m., -1.5 feet; and Nov. 8, 7:55 p.m., -1.2 feet.
