Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:26 AM EST Dec. 13, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk remains in effect until 3 PM EST this
afternoon...

* rip current timing... elevated wave action will continue to
support an high risk of rip currents through this afternoon.

* Rip current impacts... strong rip currents will be hazardous for
those in the surf zone along area beaches today.


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. For maximum safety... swim near a lifeguard.
Pay attention to flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
