Expires 2:00 PM EDT on July 22, 2014


... High rip current risk now in effect until 1 PM CDT this
afternoon...

* Impacts... dangerous rip currents will persist through early this
afternoon with numerous to widespread rip currents likely.
Continue to monitor for later statements as updates are received
from local lifeguards today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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.
