Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:17 AM CDT Aug. 17, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Green Bay has issued a beach
hazards statement, which is in effect through this evening.

* High wave action, strong currents, and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Location...

beaches of Door County including Rock Island state beach,
Baileys Harbor beaches, and Whitefish Dunes Beach.

Beaches of Kewaunee County including Cresent Beach and
city of Kewaunee beach.

Beaches of Manitowoc County including Point Beach, neshotah
beach, and red arrow beach.

* Strong south winds will bring waves of 4 to 6 feet feet to the
Lake Michigan shore of northeast Wisconsin through 9 PM this
evening, resulting in dangerous swimming conditions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult as waves on the Great
Lakes occur in rapid succession. High wave action also leads to
strong currents.
