Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:54 PM EDT on June 28, 2017

Expires 2:00 PM EDT on June 29, 2017


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through Thursday
afternoon...

* 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 Manistee.

Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include... South
Beach in South Haven... Grand Haven State Park... Pere Marquette
Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... south southwest winds to 30 mph
will generate waves to 5 to 8 feet north of Holland tonight and
waves of 3 to 6 feet south of Holland. The most dangerous
conditions will be on the south side of pier structures.
Conditions will continue to be hazardous into Thursday, before
winds and waves diminish mid Thursday afternoon.

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.
