...beach hazards statement now in effect through thursday
evening...
* hazards...strong rip currents and dangerous shore break.
* timing...through thursday evening.
* waves and surf...3 to 4 feet this evening...building to 5 to 6
feet thursday morning...diminishing to 3 to 4 feet late thursday afternoon.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
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.

dangerous shore break of 4 feet or greater can cause neck and

break occurs when waves break directly on the beach potentially
causing neck and head injuries.

...high rip current risk remains in effect until 11 pm edt this
evening...
* locations...the new jersey shore and the delaware beaches.
* risk of rip currents...high.
* surf height...3 to 5 feet.
* impacts...beach patrols reported swimming restrictions at
several of the new jersey and delaware beaches today. the swells
and associated rip currents will increase further through
tonight.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
the risk of drowning will be magnified if opting to swim after
lifeguards go off duty.
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.
