Coastal Hazard Statement
Statement as of 3:07 PM EST on February 5, 2016
... High rip current risk remains in effect until 7 PM EST this
The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a
beach hazards statement for rip currents... which is in effect
through 7 PM EST this evening.
* Rip current timing... through this evening.
* Rip current impacts... large breaking surf will result to result
in a high risk of frequent dangerous rip currents along area
beaches into the evening hours. Surf and the threat of frequent
rip currents will subside overnight into the day on Saturday.
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.
