Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 10:24 AM CDT on May 29, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 29, 2016


... High rip current risk remains in effect until 7 PM CDT this
evening...

* timing... now through Sunday evening.

* Impacts... the Memorial Day weekend will continue to bring
large numbers of people to South Padre Island as very warm
temperatures prevail across the area. The rip current hazard
will be dangerous for poor swimmers who are not equipped to
enter the water and safely navigate strong rip currents in the
surf offshore.

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.
