...high rip current risk remains in effect until 8 pm edt this

* locations...beaches of southeast south carolina and southeast 

* rip currents...wind and wave conditions support the 
  development of very strong rip currents. these rip currents 
  will be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

* breaking wave heights...5 to 7 feet.

* impacts...large breaking waves will be dangerous to anyone who 
  enters the surf. there will also be dangerous rip currents and 
  possible beach erosion.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

no one should enter the surf due to life threatening rip

everyone should remain out of the water. mariners should use
extreme caution...especially near inlets...cuts and bays. swells
approaching these areas can lead to large...dangerous breaking
waves. keep a clear distance away from the ocean. structures such
as piers and jetties will be particularly treacherous.

...beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
...high surf advisory remains in effect until 8 pm edt monday...

* hazards...a high threat of strong rip current and dangerous 
  shore break. large surf will lead to beach erosion and possibly
  ocean overwash around the time of high tide. 

* location...all beaches.

* timing and tides...the most likely time for strong rip currents
  is a couple of hours either side of low tide, which will occur
  around 5 pm today.

* impacts...powerful waves and rip currents which could result 
  in injuries to anyone who enters the surf.

* surf height...5 to 8 feet.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

if caught in a rip current remain calm. don't fight the current.
swim in a direction following the shoreline. when out of the
current, swim back to shore. if tired, float or tread water until
out of the rip current. if unable to escape, face the shore and
call or wave for help.

shore break occurs when waves break directly on the beach. the
most common injuries with strong shore break are neck and back
injuries, which most often occur when the powerful surf throws a
swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom. it is extremely
important to protect your head and neck whenever you are in
breaking waves by keeping your hands in front of you at all

a high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.
