Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 2:38 PM CDT on August 28, 2014

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on August 29, 2014


... Rip current risk now in effect through Friday afternoon...

* timing... through Friday afternoon.

* Impacts... dangerous rip currents will continue to occur along
the Gulf facing beaches of the middle Texas coast. Both the
strength and frequency of these rip currents will result in surf
that is dangerous for swimmers... especially around jetties and
piers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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.

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. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
