Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:26 PM EDT on May 29, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 30, 2016


... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Monday evening...

* hazards... high rip current risk.

* Location... along the beaches.

* Timing and tides... low tide around 830 am and again at 900 PM
evening. Highest threat expected a few hours before and after
low tide.

* Surf height... 3 to 4 feet.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach
access points and lifeguard stations.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current... since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.
