Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 11:11 AM EDT on July 30, 2015

Expires 4:00 PM EDT on July 30, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 4 PM EDT this
afternoon...

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

* Strong structural currents possible.

* Strong longshore currents possible.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Manistee.

* Overview/potential impacts... winds have begun to diminish and
should remain 10 to 20 knots this afternoon. Waves have also
begun to diminish and should decrease to 2 to 4 feet this
afternoon.

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.
