High Surf Advisory
Issued: 4:42 AM EDT Sep. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory in effect from 8 am this morning to 6 PM
EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a high surf
advisory... which is in effect from 8 am this morning to 6 PM EDT
this evening.

* Location... along the east facing shorelines of Cape Ann, Outer
Cape cod and Nantucket.

* Surf height... up to 3 to 5 feet near shore.

* Timing... expect high surf to begin by around 8 am, then slowly

* impacts... the high surf will bring a high risk of rip currents
along east facing shorelines in the advisory area. There may
also be some minor splashover around the times of high tide late
this morning into early afternoon due to the high surf combining
with near astronomical high tides.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

If you are a poor swimmer and are caught in a rip current... swim
parallel to the beach until out of its pull... then swim back to
shore. Another means of escape for good swimmers is to ride the
current out until it dissipates... then swim back to shore outside
of the rip current.

Do not attempt to swim directly into the rip current... it can
exhaust and drown even the strongest swimmer.

Heed the advice of the beach patrol and swim only at guarded
beaches. Be especially cautious near piers and jetties... where rip
currents can be enhanced.

In addition... viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas
well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more
than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a person into
the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area. Falling
into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in injury
that reduces the chance of survival.
