Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:40 AM EDT on August 27, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 27, 2014


... 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 risk will be greatest between 12:30 PM and 7:00 PM
due to tidal effects.

* Impacts... when the rip current threat is high... the surf is
dangerous for all levels of swimmers. The powerful seaward pull
of a rip current can carry even the strongest swimmer out
beyond The Sand Bar.

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 and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
