  at 130 am wednesday morning. 

* waves and surf...gulf seas along the lower texas coastline will
  build to 6 to 9 feet later today and will persist in this range

  beaches later this afternoon and this evening and will persist
  through at least wednesday afternoon as large swells moving away
  from the center of dolly impact the lower texas coast.

* impacts...elevated swells from tropical storm dolly will result

  also produce minor to moderate beach erosion...especially to
  dunes. any personal property left on the beach...such as
  umbrellas or chairs...may be damaged by the large waves.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 and the beach
patrol. pay attention to flags and posted signs.

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.
