A High Rip Current Risk has also been issued. This High Rip Current Risk is in effect from 8 AM EDT this morning through this evening. * WAVES AND SURF…Breaking waves of 5 to 7 feet will occur within the surf zone. * TIMING…Swells will build in height all day. * IMPACTS…Noticeably large breaking waves will make entering the water hazardous. Strong Rip Currents will also be present within the surf zone. A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area…producing localized beach erosion at high tide along with very dangerous swimming conditions. 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 jetties and piers. If you must enter the water, heed the advice of lifeguards…beach patrol flags and signs. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.
