Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches. People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water. 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. Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can sweep you into deeper water along the pier structure. Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most significant wave and current impacts. Impacts at beaches with protective breakwalls or jetties will be subject to the orientation of structures as well as wind and wave direction.
