Expires 11:00 PM EDT on August 28, 2014


... High rip current risk remains in effect through this
evening...

* locations... the New Jersey shore and the Delaware beaches.

* Risk of rip currents... high.

* Surf height... 3 to 5 feet.

* Impacts... dangerous rip currents will exist in the surf and
they will present a serious threat to anyone who enters the
water.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high risk of rip currents implies that wind and/or wave
conditions will support the development of very strong rip
currents. These rip currents will be life threatening to anyone
who enters the surf.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore. They 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. Do not attempt to enter the
water if life guards are not present.
