Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:42 PM CDT Aug. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 9 PM EDT /8 PM
CDT/ this evening...

* life-threatening conditions expected...

* high wave action expected...

* strong rip currents expected...

* strong structural currents expected...

* overview/potential impacts... north winds of 10 to 20 mph early
this evening will result in continued 3 to 5 foot waves. Winds
and waves will subside late this evening. The high waves will
result in dangerous swimming conditions at Lake Michigan beaches
through this evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

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

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.
