High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 10:20 AM EST on February 09, 2016

Expires 4:00 AM EST on February 10, 2016


... High surf advisory remains in effect until 4 am EST
Wednesday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through late tonight...

* surf... peaking around 6 to 7 feet west of the Saint Joseph
Peninsula and south of Tyndall AFB.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

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... beach patrol flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
