Coastal Hazard Statement

  • Statement as of 4:35 am EDT on July 29, 2014


    ... Rip current risk remains in effect through this evening...

    * timing... through Tuesday.

    * Impacts... moderate risk of rip currents at area beaches. Rip
    currents are very dangerous and can pull even the strongest
    swimmers out into deeper waters.

    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.
