Watches & Warnings

Coastal Hazard Statement, Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 4:29 AM CDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk now in effect through Saturday morning...
... Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT
Thursday...

* coastal flooding... water levels 1 to 2 feet above ground level
possible especially during high tide... continuing through 7 PM
Thursday evening.

* Timing... through the end of the week.

* Impacts... frequent life-threatening rip currents are expected.
The surf is dangerous for all levels of swimmers.

* Impacts... minor flooding possible for all inland bays and
sounds and along all Gulf beaches for Alabama and northwest
Florida.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Rip currents are life-
threatening to anyone entering the surf. Swim near a lifeguard.
If caught in a rip current remain calm. Don't fight the current.
Swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to
escape... face the shore and call or wave for help. If tired...
float or tread water until out of the rip current.

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that strong easterly winds and
tides above predicted levels will combine to generate flooding of
low areas along the shore.
