...high rip current risk now in effect through late tuesday
night...

* timing...through tuesday night.

* impacts...strong and dangerous rip currents are forecast along 
  the atlantic beaches of south florida, which will be hazardous 
  for those in the surf zone. 

precautionary/preparedness actions...

there is a high risk of rip currents.

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.

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

...beach hazards statement in effect from 7 am est this morning
through this evening...

the national weather service in melbourne has issued a beach
hazards statement for strong long shore currents, developing rough
surf and a moderate risk of rip currents, which is in effect from
7 am est this morning through this evening. 

* hazards...a strong north to south flowing longshore current will
  pose a hazard to those entering the surf today. a lingering
  ocean swell will also contribute to a moderate risk for rip
  currents. rough surf will develop at the beaches by afternoon.
  remember to always swim within sight of a lifeguard.

* timing...through 7 pm.

* location...east central florida beaches.

* potential impacts...a strong north to south flowing long shore
  current can knock you off a sandbar and into deeper waters
  making you more susceptible to rip currents. rough surf will
  also develop by afternoon causing a hazard to those entering the
  surf. strong rip currents are also possible near pier and 
jetties. 

precautionary/preparedness actions...

longshore currents commonly occur when waves approach the 
shoreline at an angle. they can be particularly dangerous near a 
jetty or pier.

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