...high surf advisory remains in effect until 9 pm edt friday...
* location...south coast of rhode island and massachusetts
including nantucket...marthas vineyard and block island.
* surf height...6 to 12 feet tonight subsiding to 3 to 6 feet
friday.
* timing...through 9 pm 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.

...high surf advisory remains in effect until 2 am edt friday...
* locations...atlantic facing beaches from brooklyn to montauk.
* surf...4 to 7 ft.
* rip currents...high risk of dangerous rip currents.
* timing...through early morning.
* impacts...minor beach erosion and localized wash-overs
possible...mainly around the times of high tide.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
a high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area...producing dangerous rip currents...beach
erosion and localized wash-overs.
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. talk to lifeguards and beach officials to
learn about any surf hazards and heed their advice. pay attention
to flags and posted signs and swim in life guarded areas.
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.
