...beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...

* high wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* location...beaches from caseville to port huron including...

 caseville...sand point...port crescent state park...   port
austin...harbor beach...port sanilac...lexington...   birch
beach...lakeport...fort gratiot...port huron...

* overview/potential impacts...north to northeast winds will gust
  up to 30 mph today. this will create the possibility for rip and
  structural currents as well as longshore currents to develop.

precautionary/preparedness actions...

be sure of your swimming ability. children should not enter the
water unsupervised and without a certified flotation device.
caution should be used when in or near the water. pay attention
to flags and signs posted near beach access points and lifeguard
stations.

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.

...beach hazards statement remains in effect through late
tonight...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming 
  conditions expected. 

* strong structural currents expected.

* strong longshore currents expected.

* rip currents possible.

* location...beaches from grand haven to manistee.

* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include...the
  north side of piers including stearns park in ludington...mears
  state park and muskegon state park.

* overview/potential impacts...north winds 20 to 30 mph with waves
  of 3 to 6 feet will create hazardous swimming conditions. the
  north side of piers will be especially dangerous today and
  tonight as strong structural currents are expected to develop.
  additionally... long shore currents are expected away from the
  piers.

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.
