... Beach hazards statement in effect from Saturday morning
through Saturday evening...

The National Weather Service in San Francisco has issued a beach
hazards statement for strong rip currents... which is in effect
from Saturday morning through Saturday evening.

* Hazards... a heightened risk of strong rip currents.

* Timing... a long period swell will enter the coastal waters this
evening and will promote strong rip currents through at least
Saturday evening.

* Location... all beaches along the coast from Sonoma County south
into Monterey County.

* Potential impacts... strong rip currents can quickly pull
swimmers into deep water.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazard statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
Rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties... inlets... and piers. Swimmers caught in a rip
current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. Swimmers should always
swim near a lifeguard.
