Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 5:15 AM EDT on July 25, 2016

Expires 12:00 PM EDT on July 25, 2016


... Beach hazards statement in effect until noon EDT today...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement... which is in effect until noon EDT today.

* High wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents expected.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Grand Haven

* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include...


South Beach in South Haven...
Grand Haven State Park...

* overview/potential impacts... southwest winds of 15 to 25 mph
will support a period of waves of 3 to 5 feet to start the day.
By noon conditions should become less hazardous.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
