Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 10:40 AM CDT Jun. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
beach hazards statement for hazardous swimming conditions, which
is in effect through this evening.

* Hazards... strong rip currents and longshore currents

* timing... at least through this evening

* location... Gulf-facing beaches

* potential impacts... hazardous swimming conditions

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the 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... beach patrol...
flags and signs. Swim near a lifeguard.

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.
