Watches & Warnings

Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:17 PM EDT Aug. 16, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk remains in effect until 9 PM EDT this
evening...

* locations... the Long Island and New York City ocean beaches.

* Rip current risk... high.

* Surf height... 5 to 6 feet.

* Lightning risk... none.

* Timing... into at least this evening. The high rip current risk
could extend into Thursday.

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
sandbars and near structures such as groins... jetties... and
piers. Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to learn about any
surf hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention to flags and
posted signs and swim in life guarded areas.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current... relax and
float... and do not swim against the current. If able... swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape... face the
shore and call or wave for help.
