Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 2:44 AM EDT on July 07, 2015

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on July 07, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Grand Haven to Manistee.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions this afternoon
and evening in southerly flow include... Pere Marquette Park in
Muskegon. On Tuesday with north winds in place particularly
dangerous beaches include Stearns Park in Ludington... Mears
State Park in Pentwater and Muskegon State Park.

* Overview/potential impacts... north winds of 15 to 25 knots will
diminish to 10 to 20 knots this evening. Expect waves of 3 to 5
feet today into early this evening. A high swim risk is
expected into this evening due to the high winds and waves
causing strong long shore and strucural currrents.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
