Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:38 PM EDT Sep. 28, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect through Thursday evening...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through Thursday evening.

* Location... the New Jersey shore and Delaware beaches.

* Risk of rip currents... there is a high risk of rip currents
through Thursday evening.

* Surf height... wave heights will build to 4 to 6 feet.

* Timing and tides... low tide... when there is the highest risk of
rip currents... occurs between 100 am and 200 am EDT and again
between 130 PM and 230 PM. Both times are for Thursday.

* Other hazards... spotty minor tidal flooding is possible during
the Thursday morning high tide. A more widespread minor tidal
flooding event may occur during the Thursday evening/night high
tide.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. A high risk of rip currents
implies that wind and/or wave conditions will support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents will
be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

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.
