Statement as of 5:25 am EST on November 23, 2014Coastal Hazard Statement
... Rip current risk in effect through this evening...
The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.
* Timing... through this evening.
* Impacts... an increased risk for rip current development will
exist at area beaches today. Rip currents are very dangerous
and can pull even the strongest swimmers out into deeper water.
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.
