Coastal Hazard Statement
Statement as of 1:07 PM EDT on August 04, 2015

... High rip current risk remains in effect until 9 PM EDT this
evening...

* locations... ocean beaches of New York City and Long Island.

* Rip current risk... high.

* Surf height... 4 to 6 ft.

* Lightning risk... moderate.

* Timing... through 9 PM.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to learn about any surf
hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention to flags and posted
signs and swim in life guarded areas.

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.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore. Once you are away from the force of the rip current...
begin to swim back toward the beach. Do not attempt to swim
directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
