...beach hazards statement remains in effect through thursday
evening...
* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.
* strong structural currents expected.
* strong longshore currents expected.
* rip currents expected.
* location...beaches from st. joseph to manistee.
* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions will be those
on the north side of piers. this includes north beach in south
haven... holland state park... muskegon state park... mears
state park in pentwater...and stearns park in ludington.
* overview/potential impacts...north winds 15 to 25 knots will
continue through thursday evening. this will create hazardous
swimming conditions...especially near pier structures. waves
will be 3 to 6 feet.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
high wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.
structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.
a longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.
rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
