Watches & Warnings

Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 8:26 AM CDT Aug. 30, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect until 8 PM EDT /7 PM CDT/ this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect until 8 PM EDT /7 PM CDT/ this
evening.

* Timing... through this evening

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore. They occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar... as well as in the vicinity of jetties and piers.

Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol flags... and signs
before entering the water. If caught in a rip current do not swim
against it. Face the shore and signal for help. Float or tread
water until the current ends or until rescued.




Tropical Storm Watch
Issued: 5:22 PM EDT Aug. 30, 2016 – National Weather Service

        - peak wind forecast: 10-20 mph with gusts to 25 mph

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - remain braced against the reasonable threat for tropical
          storm force wind of 39 to 57 mph.
        - To be safe, efforts should fully focus on avoiding injury.
          Properties remain subject to limited wind impacts.
        - Now is the time to hide from the wind. Failure to
          adequately shelter may result in serious injury. Remain
          sheltered until the hazardous wind subsides.

    - Potential impacts: unfolding
        - potential impacts from the main wind event are unfolding.
        - The extent of realized impacts will depend on the actual
          strength, duration, and exposure of the wind as experienced
          at particular locations.

          lying areas, necessitating basic precautions to protect
          vulnerable structures.
        - Rivers and associated tributary creeks and streams will
          rise and approach bankfull levels. Runoff will increase
          water levels in area holding ponds and drainage ditches,
          reducing storage capacity to absorb future rainfall.
        - Isolated flooding in low lying areas will make driving
          difficult. Ponding of water in low lying areas may result
          in brief Road closures.

          significantly damaged, especially those unanchored. Large
          trees will be snapped or uprooted.
