Coastal Hazard Statement, Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:55 PM EDT on August 30, 2015

... High rip current risk now in effect through Monday morning...

* timing... through Monday morning.

* Impacts... persistent gusty easterly winds will affect the East
Coast Metro areas of South Florida through Monday morning.
Dangerous swimming conditions will continue through Monday
morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of 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... beach patrol
flags and signs.

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 and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of South Florida... including the following coastal
Broward... coastal ... Collier... coastal Miami Dade... coastal
Palm Beach... far South Miami Dade... Glades... Hendry... inland
Broward... inland Collier... inland Miami Dade... inland Palm
Beach... Mainland Monroe... Metro Broward... Metro Miami Dade and
Metro Palm Beach.

* Through Monday morning

* deep tropical moisture associated with the remnants of Erika
currently extending across the Florida Straits will continue
moving into South Florida this morning through tonight. This
will continue the threat for very heavy rainfall across South
Florida with rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches... along with the
possibility of much higher amounts where showers and
thunderstorms move over the same area.

* Heavy rain may create significant flooding of streets... urban
areas... and low lying flood prone areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
