...high rip current risk in effect through this evening...
the national weather service in brownsville has issued a high rip
current risk...which is in effect through this evening.
* timing...all day thursday.
* impacts...surf heights of 3 to 6 feet and increasing period and
swell will result in frequent life threatening rip currents today.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
there is a high risk of rip currents.
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. heed the advice of lifeguards and the
beach patrol. pay attention to flags and posted signs.
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.
