Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:05 AM EDT Aug. 18, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Detroit/Pontiac has issued a
beach hazards statement... which is in effect through this
evening.

* High wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents... expected.

* Location... beaches from Caseville to Port Austin including...

Sand Point... Port Crescent State Park...

* overview/potential impacts... southwest wind around 20 knots
with gusts to 30 knots will be common through the day. High
waves developing on the western and northern shoreline will make
swimming hazardous... especially near piers and breakwalls.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Children should not enter the water unsupervised and without a
certified flotation device. Caution should be used when in or near
the water. Pay attention to flags and signs posted near beach
access points and lifeguard stations.

High wave action alone can make swimming difficult on days such
as this. Incoming waves in rapid succession can tire a swimmer
quickly.

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

dangerouscurrents.Org (all lower case)
