... High rip current risk in effect through Tuesday morning...

The National Weather Service in Mobile has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through Tuesday morning.

* Timing... through late tonight.

* Impacts... dangerous rip currents will persist through late tonight with
numerous to widespread rip currents likely. Continue to monitor for
later statements as updates are received from local lifeguards
today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
