High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 10:44 AM EDT on September 25, 2017

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on September 26, 2017


... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 PM EDT Tuesday...

* location... along ocean exposed beaches on the south coasts of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

* Timing... through Tuesday.

* Surf and rip current risk... increasing long period southerly
swell from distant Hurricane Maria will continue to push across
the south coastal waters through Tuesday. This will result in high
surf along the ocean exposed coastline and a high risk of
dangerous rip currents.

* Shoreline impacts... areas of beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

In addition... viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas
well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more
than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a person
into the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area.
Falling into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in
injury that reduces the chance of survival.
