Beach Hazard Statement
Statement as of 3:42 PM EDT on May 24, 2015

... Beach hazards statement in effect from Monday morning through
late Monday night...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions... which is in
effect from Monday morning through late Monday night.

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

* Strong structural currents expected on south facing piers.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Grand Haven.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions Memorial Day
include...

South Beach in South Haven...
Grand Haven State Park.

* Overview/potential impacts... south winds will increase to 30
knots causing waves to build to 3 to 5 feet. This will make for
hazardous swimming.

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.
