Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 7:59 AM EDT on July 31, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on July 31, 2015


... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions... which is in
effect through this evening.

* High wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents possible

* strong longshore currents possible

* rip currents possible

* location... beaches from Saugatuck to Ludington

* overview/potential impacts... gusty west winds along with waves
building 3 to 5 feet will create dangerous swimming conditions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
