Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:58 PM EDT Jul. 24, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement now in effect until midnight EDT
tonight...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Muskegon to Manistee

* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include...

Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... southwest winds 15 to 25 mph. This
will result in 3 to 5 foot waves... resulting in hazardous
swimming conditions. Conditions will improve late this evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
