Coastal Hazard Statement
Statement as of 10:21 am EDT on April 27, 2015
... Moderate rip current risk in effect through Tuesday
The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a
moderate rip current risk... which is in effect through Tuesday
* Timing... through Tuesday afternoon.
* Impacts... rip currents will have the potential to be stronger
and more frequent for the next couple of days.
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.
