...high surf advisory now in effect until 8 am friday...

* location...south coast of rhode island and massachusetts 
  including nantucket...marthas vineyard and block island.

* surf height...6 to 12 feet.

* timing...through 8 am friday.

* impacts...high risk of dangerous surf and rip currents. also 
  viewers of large surf should be in safe areas well away from 
  possible splash over. large waves can sweep a person into the 
  water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area. falling 
  into the turbulent and sometimes rocky waters can result in 
  injury that reduces the chance of survival.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

a rip current...sometimes mistakenly called an undertow...is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. it can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

if you are a poor swimmer and are caught in a rip current...swim
parallel to the beach until out of its pull.  another means of
escape for those who are good swimmers is to ride the current out
beyond the surf zone where the rip current dissipates...then swim
toward shore outside the effect of the narrow rip current.

do not attempt to swim back to shore directly against the
current...it can exhaust and drown even the strongest swimmer.

heed the advice of the beach patrol and swim only at guarded
beaches.  watch your children.  be especially cautious near piers
and jetties where rip currents can be enhanced.

...high surf advisory now in effect until 2 am edt friday...

* locations...atlantic facing beaches from brooklyn to montauk.

* surf...5 to 8 ft...locally 8 to 10 ft. highest across central
  and eastern long island.

* rip currents...high risk of dangerous rip currents.

* timing...through this evening.

* impacts...minor beach erosion and localized wash-overs expected
  along the beachfront...particularly this morning into mid
  afternoon with high tide. 

precautionary/preparedness actions...

a high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area...producing dangerous rip currents...beach
erosion and localized washovers.

rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. talk to lifeguards and beach officials to
learn about any surf hazards and heed their advice. pay attention
to flags and posted signs and swim in life guarded areas.

if you become caught in a rip current...do not panic. remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. once you are away from the
force of the rip current...begin to swim back to the beach. do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.

...high rip current risk...

.hurricane cristobal is forecast to continue moving farther out
to sea today. however, long period swells associated with the
storm will bring a high rip current risk to the beaches of
delaware and new jersey into this evening.

452 am edt thu aug 28 2014

...high rip current risk remains in effect through this
evening...

* locations...the new jersey shore and the delaware beaches.

* risk of rip currents...high.

* surf height...3 to 5 feet.

* impacts...dangerous rip currents will exist in the surf and
  they will present a serious threat to anyone who enters the
  water.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

a high risk of rip currents implies that wind and/or wave
conditions will support the development of very strong rip
currents. these rip currents will be life threatening to anyone
who enters the surf.

rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore. they occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. pay
attention to flags and posted signs. do not attempt to enter the
water if life guards are not present.
