Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 8:37 PM EDT on August 30, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 31, 2016


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

Through Wednesday... there remains a moderate risk for the
formation of dangerous rip currents as long period swells
continue to roll in. This is resulting in rough surf conditions.

The large breakers in the beach swimming zone can knock swimmers
and waders into the sand... causing injury.

It is strongly advised to swim only in designated areas watched
by lifeguards. Swimming after the lifeguards go home or where
lifeguards do not have you in sight raises the risk of injury or
death due to rip currents. Some beaches however may no longer
have lifeguards on duty now that it is late in the season.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water.
