Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 11:01 AM EDT on July 01, 2016


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...

* 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 Grand Haven.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions on Friday
include...

North Beach in South Haven... Holland State Park.

* Overview/potential impacts..northwest winds of 20 to 35 mph will
result in 4 to 6 foot waves for the rest of today. Winds and
waves will diminish toward midnight. Very dangerous currents
can be expected on the north side of piers and breakwalls.

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.
