Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 1:17 PM EDT on April 20, 2014

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on April 20, 2014


... High rip current risk remains in effect until 11 PM EDT this
evening...

* timing... strong northerly winds will create a longshore
current... combining with easterly swells to produce a high risk
of rip currents today. This threat will likely continue Monday.

* Impacts... rip currents will be common at area beaches today.
Beach goers should exercise caution if entering the surf.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
