Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 9:06 PM CDT on July 23, 2014

Expires 11:00 AM EDT on July 24, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Thursday
morning...

* high wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* Forecast wave heights... waves 6 to 10 ft occasionally to 13 ft.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Structural currents form along piers where longshore
currents and wave action flow into the structure. Rip currents
and structural currents can sweep you into deeper water.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts.

Impacts at beaches with protective breakwalls or jetties will be
subject to orientation of structures as well as wind and wave
direction.
