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.

    Precautionary/preparedness actions...

    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.
