412 am edt fri aug 29 2014

...high surf advisory remains in effect until 8 am edt this
morning...

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

* surf height...3 to 5 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.
