Statement as of 4:08 AM EDT on May 03, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 03, 2015

... High rip current risk in effect from 8 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 this morning through this

* Timing... though rip currents could occur anytime... the greatest
seaward pull is expected to be from late morning through late
afternoon due to tidal effects.

* Impacts... life threatening rip currents are likely.

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... 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.
