Watches & Warnings

Coastal Hazard Statement, Coastal Flood Statement, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 5:29 PM EDT Jul. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect from Monday morning through
Monday evening...

... Localized minor coastal flooding...

Tides will approach and perhaps just reach minor coastal flooding
thresholds around the high tide tonight. Any coastal flooding will be
localized and minor.

* Locations... Atlantic beaches of central Long Island for rip currents.

* Rip current risk... high.

* Surf height... around 5 feet.

* Lightning risk... moderate.

* Timing... Monday.

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.
