Coastal Hazard Statement

  • Statement as of 3:00 am EST on January 27, 2015

    ... Rip current risk now in effect through this evening...
    ... High surf advisory remains in effect until 7 am EST this

    * waves and surf... northwest winds around 20 knots early this
    morning will produce surf around 5 feet through early this
    morning. Winds will diminish into the 15 to 20 knot range later
    this morning and into the afternoon.

    * Timing... surf will remain around 5 feet through early this
    morning before diminishing the remainder of the day.

    * Impacts... rough surf will continue through early this morning
    with improving conditions expected from mid morning and into the
    afternoon. Even though surf heights will be decreasing a
    moderate onshore wind flow will keep a high risk of rip currents
    going along area beaches through this evening.

    Precautionary/preparedness actions...

    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.
