Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:19 AM EDT Aug. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect from 8 am EDT this morning
through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Marquette has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions, which is in
effect from 8 am EDT this morning through this evening.

* High wave action and dangerous swimming conditions are
expected along the shorelines of Upper Michigan.

* Strong rip currents: expected.

* Strong outlet currents: expected.

Locations/impacts

Current related fatalities and rescues in the past have occurred
during wave conditions similar to today near the Au Train river
mouth at Au Train, the exposed regions of Grand Marais Harbor, and
the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Dangerous pounding waves and life-threatening currents are
expected at the beaches. People visiting the beaches should stay
out of the water. Pay attention to beach flags and signs posted
at beach access points and lifeguard stations.

Dangerous currents can sweep you out away from shore. They occur
most often at breaks or low spots in sandbars, near shoreline
structures, and near river mouths or other water outlets.
