... Rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Ruskin has issued a rip current
risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... through this evening.

* Impacts... increased rip currents at area beaches. Rip currents
are very dangerous and can pull even the strongest swimmers
out into deeper water.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
