Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:59 AM EDT Aug. 28, 2016 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... the threat for rip currents will be in place all day,
however, it will be highest between 900 am and 300 PM due to
tidal effects.

* Impacts... the seaward pull of rip currents can be life
threatening. Only swim in the ocean near a lifeguard.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... remain calm and Yell for
help. 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.
