Statement as of 3:53 AM EST on February 07, 2016

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 07, 2016


... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

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

* Timing... through Sunday evening.

* Impacts... hazardous marine conditions along the Atlantic coast of
South Florida will result in strong rip currents that are
extremely dangerous for swimmers.

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.
