Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:16 PM EDT on August 01, 2015

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on August 03, 2015


... Beach hazards statement in effect from late tonight through
Monday morning...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions... which is in
effect from late tonight through Monday morning.

* 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.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions late tonight and
Sunday include... South Beach in South Haven... Grand Haven State
Park... Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... southwest winds will increase late
tonight from north to south along the Lakeshore. Winds up to 25
to locally 30 mph will produce waves of 3 to 6 feet with locally
higher waves likely... especially further north.

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.
