Coastal Hazard Statement, Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 11:36 AM EDT on April 19, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 19, 2015

... High rip current risk remains in effect through late tonight...

* location: Walton... Bay... Gulf and Franklin County beaches.

* Surf: building to around 3 feet today.

* Impacts: stronger and more frequent rip currents are likely
today... which could be hazardous to those entering the water.

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... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

southwest Georgia... and parts of the Florida Big Bend. This

Panama City.

* Through this evening
