Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in

dangerous swimming conditions.

There is a high risk of rip currents. Rip currents are life-

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.
