High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Statement as of 3:34 am EST on January 26, 2015
... High surf advisory in effect until 7 am EST Tuesday...
... Rip current risk in effect through Tuesday morning...
The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a
high surf advisory... which is in effect until 7 am EST Tuesday. A
rip current risk has also been issued. This rip current risk is
in effect through Tuesday morning.
* Waves and surf... northwest winds of 20-25 knots with higher
gusts will build surf to around 5-7 feet.
* Timing... surf will begin to build early this morning as a cold
front crosses the region and will remain elevated through early
* Impacts... rough surf and a high risk of rip currents are
expected along area beaches.
A high surf advisory is issued when dangerous water action is
expected along the coast. This includes rough surf... large
breaking waves... rip currents... and strong undertow.
Beach goers are urged to heed lifeguard warnings.
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.
