Coastal Hazard Statement
Statement as of 4:20 am EDT on March 28, 2015
... High rip current risk in effect from 10 am EDT this morning
through this evening...
The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a
high rip current risk... which is in effect from 10 am EDT this
morning through this evening.
* Timing... this morning through this evening.
* Impacts... high risk of rip currents at area beaches.
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.
