Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 7:00 PM Jul. 17, 2024 – National Weather Service
...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE
TONIGHT...

* WHAT...High wave action, strong currents, and dangerous
swimming conditions expected. Piers may be heavily swamped by
waves.

* WHERE...Mason, Oceana, Muskegon, Ottawa, Allegan and Van Buren
counties.

* WHEN...Through late tonight.

* IMPACTS...Strong currents can pull swimmers into deeper water
and high waves can sweep people off piers.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Conditions continue to deteriorate for many
of the beaches in West Michigan. Strong north winds have
resulted in building waves with hazardous swim conditions
becoming widespread. The north sides of piers will be most
dangerous and webcams confirm this around Holland State Park and
North Beach in South Haven. The buoy's are showing waves now up
to around 4 feet. The waves will continue to build this
afternoon which will increase the already hazardous swim risk.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Remain out of the water to avoid hazardous swimming conditions
and do not venture out on piers. Please check with your local
authorities on potential beach closures.
