Beach Hazard Statement

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on August 19, 2018
Statement as of 4:53 am EDT on August 19, 2018

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

Southwesterly winds between 10 and 15 knots with higher gusts will
create a strong south to north longshore current for the east facing
beaches across the area on Sunday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Longshore currents can sweep swimmers and surfers into rip currents,
piers, jetties, and other hazardous areas. Often, if the longshore
current is strong enough, it will sweep swimmers off their feet,
making it difficult to return to shore. Caution should be used when
in or near the water. Check with the lifeguards before entering the
ocean for possible hazards.
