Expires 8:00 AM EDT on October 27, 2016

... High rip current risk in effect from late tonight through
Thursday morning...

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect from late tonight through
Thursday morning.

* Timing... Wednesday and Wednesday night.

* Impacts... life threatening rip currents are expected through
Wednesday night.

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.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
