Expires 11:00 PM EDT on September 01, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect from 11 am EDT this
morning through this evening...

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

* strong rip currents expected...

* strong structural currents expected...

* overview/potential impacts... strong southwest winds will
develop during the afternoon hours on Labor Day and continue
into the evening. This will result in high waves and strong
rip currents... especially near piers and break walls... along
the Berrien County shore of Lake Michigan.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Dangerous pounding waves and life-threatening rip currents are
expected at the beaches. People visiting the beaches should stay
out of the water.

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.

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.
