Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:17 PM EDT on May 30, 2015

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on May 31, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Sunday
afternoon...

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

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents expected.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Manistee.

* Overview/potential impacts... north to northeast winds this
afternoon at 20 to 30 knots continue through most of Sunday.
This will build waves to between 4 and 6 feet. These conditions
in combination with the very cold water will make being in the
water hazardous.

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.
