Beach Hazard Statement
Statement as of 3:40 PM EDT on May 25, 2015

... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Tuesday
morning...

* 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 include...

Grand Haven State Park. South Beach in South Haven.

* Overview/potential impacts... south winds 15 to 25 mph causing
waves of 3 to 6 feet. This will make for hazardous swimming
conditions. Cold water will be a swim risk as well due to
hypothermia concerns.

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.
