Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 6:06 PM EDT Aug. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 11 PM EDT this
evening...

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

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents expected.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Holland.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include North
Beach in South Haven and Holland State Park.

* Overview/potential impacts... northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph
turning to the north and diminishing to 10 to 20 mph by late
evening. Waves of 4 to 6 will subside to 2 to 3 feet by later
this evening. Until then north sides of north piers will be
dangerous places to swim.

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.
