Statement as of 4:01 am EDT on October 4, 2015Coastal Hazard Statement
... High rip current risk remains in effect through this evening...
* rip current timing... through at least this evening. The rip
current threat is forecast to diminish some through the day on
Monday... although rip currents will still be possible.
* Rip current impacts... marine conditions will support stronger
and more frequent 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 and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.
If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
