Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement, Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:49 AM EDT Oct. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect through Wednesday evening...
... Coastal flood advisory in effect until midnight EDT Wednesday
night...
... High surf advisory in effect from 8 am this morning to 6 am
EDT Wednesday...

The National Weather Service in Jacksonville has issued a high
surf advisory, which is in effect from 8 am this morning to 6 am
EDT Wednesday. A coastal flood advisory has also been issued.
This coastal flood advisory is in effect until midnight EDT
Wednesday night. In addition, a high rip current risk has been
issued. This high rip current risk is in effect through Wednesday
evening.

* Coastal flooding... minor tidal flooding is expected around times
of high tide within the St. Johns River basin and its
tributaries and along area beaches.

* Waves and surf... surf will build to 5 to 7 feet.

* Timing... through Wednesday.

* Impacts... river and creek flooding around the times of high tide
will cause minor flooding of mainly Parks, campgrounds, docks
and boat ramps and along some area Atlantic beaches. Strong rip
currents and rough surf are expected at area beaches as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents will be life threatening.

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.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
current.
