...beach hazards statement remains in effect through thursday

* waves and surf...4 to 6 feet with local higher sets along
  southwest facing beaches...especially in northern orange
  county. 2 to 4 feet elsewhere.

* rip currents...widespread dangerous rip and longshore currents.

* timing...through early thursday evening.

* impacts...the elevated surf...strong rip currents...and 
  longshore currents will produce dangerous swimming 
  conditions... especially for inexperienced swimmers. 

precautionary/preparedness actions...

a beach hazards statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties...inlets...and piers. swimmers caught in a
rip current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. swimmers should always
swim near a lifeguard.
