...beach hazards statement in effect until 8 pm edt this
the national weather service in wakefield has issued a beach
hazards statement for a high risk for rip currents...which is in
effect until 8 pm edt this evening.
a high risk of rip currents means wind and or wave conditions
support the development of very strong rip currents...especially
in the vicinity of jetties...piers...and sandbars. these rip
currents will be life-threatening to anyone who enters the surf.
be especially cautious with outgoing tides which improve rip
current formation. all beach goers should remain aware of inherent
dangers when entering the surf including swift longshore
currents...pounding shore break and shallow sand bars.
rip currents are strong...narrow channels of water that flow out
to sea. if you become caught in a rip current...remain calm. try
to swim on a course that is parallel to the beach until you get
away from the rip...then swim at an angle in to shore. do not try
to swim back to shore directly against the rip...since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.
always heed the advice of lifeguards. pay attention to flags and
signs posted near beach access points and lifeguard stations.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
