Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:04 AM EDT on May 30, 2016

Expires 10:00 PM EDT on May 30, 2016


... High rip current risk in effect from 6 am EDT this morning
through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect from 6 am EDT this morning
through this evening.

* Timing... ocean conditions and tidal effects will produce strong
rip currents this morning and again this evening.

* Impacts... the seaward pull of rip currents can be life
threatening. Only swim in the ocean near a lifeguard.

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 jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
