Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:55 AM EDT on May 29, 2015

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on May 29, 2015


... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a beach
hazards statement for life threatening rip currents and rough
surf... which is in effect through this evening.

* Hazards... moderate risk of rip currents and rough surf.

* Timing... rough surf will occur into this evening. The greatest
seaward pull from rip currents will occur around the time of low
tide in the late morning and early afternoon.

* Potential impacts... rip currents and rough surf will cause
hazardous swimming conditions at east central Florida beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... rough surf and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water.

The best safety advice is to only enter the surf near a lifeguard.

If you become caught in a current... never attempt to swim
directly against it... as you will tire quickly. Instead... tread
water and swim at an angle away from the current. Then once out of
the current... swim directly back toward the beach.
