...beach hazards statement remains in effect until 5 pm edt this
* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.
* strong structural currents expected.
* strong longshore currents expected.
* rip currents possible.
* location...beaches from muskegon to manistee
* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include...
pere marquette park in muskegon.
* overview/potential impacts...south to southwest winds will
increase this morning to 20 to 30 mph. this will cause the
waves to build to 3 to 5 feet...resulting in hazardous
swimming conditions. conditions will gradually improve later
this afternoon and evening.
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.

current risk...which is in effect until 8 pm edt this evening.

there was a drowning at pepper park in st lucie county around 6 pm
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...beach patrol
flags and signs.
if you become caught in a rip current...yell for help. remain
calm...do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. if you have to swim out of a rip current...swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
