Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 9:20 AM CDT Aug. 16, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
high rip current risk, which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... through this evening.

* Impacts... strong and potentially life threatening rip currents
are possible along Gulf-facing beaches of the Upper Texas coast.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip currents
are likely in the surf zone.

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 groins... jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol... flags
and signs. Swim near a lifeguard.

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