Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:51 AM EDT Jul. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Whitehall north to Manistee and from
Holland south to St. Joseph.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include...

North Beach in South Haven... Mears State Park in Pentwater...
Stearns Park in Ludington.

* Overview/potential impacts... north winds of 15 to 25 mph and
waves of 3 to 6 feet will create hazardous swim conditions
today. The largest waves and strongest currents are expected
north of Whitehall and south of Holland. North sides of north
piers will be dangerous places to swim through this evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
