Beach Hazard Statement, Air Quality Alert

Statement as of 3:06 AM EDT on July 22, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect from 10 am EDT this
morning through this evening...

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

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Norton Shores to Manistee.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions Tuesday
include...

Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon...

* overview/potential impacts... strong southerly winds will develop
today reaching 15 to 25 mph by midday. Waves will build to 3 to
6 feet... with the highest waves located towards Ludington. The
south flow will result in strong longshore currents and where
they intercept piers... structural currents will form. High wave
action will make swimming dangerous.

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.
