Small Craft for Hazardous Seas Advisory
Expires 6:00 AM EDT on August 29, 2014

Statement as of 10:17 PM EDT on August 27, 2014


... Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas remains in effect
until 6 am EDT Friday...

* seas... 3 to 6 feet.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that waves are
expected to be hazardous to small craft. Mariners should avoid
shoaling areas. Long period swell can sharpen into large breaking
waves in shoaling areas. It is not unusual for waves to break
much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced.
Remember... breaking waves can easily capsize even larger vessels.
