... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk, which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... the greatest risk for rip currents will take place
between 11:00 am and 3:00 PM due to tidal effects; however, rip
currents are possible throughout the day.

* Impacts... strong and dangerous rip currents are likely along the
beaches today, making entering the water dangerous for all
swimmers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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 choose to enter the surf, only do so near a lifeguard and
never swim alone! If caught in a rip current remain calm. Don't
fight the current. Swim in a direction following the shoreline. If
unable to escape... face the shore and call or wave for help. If
tired, float or tread water until out of the rip current.
