Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 5:50 PM PDT on September 17, 2014

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on September 18, 2014

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 5 am PDT

* location... coastal sections of Marin and Santa Cruz counties.
In particular south and southwest facing beaches... including
but not limited to... Stinson Beach... Santa Cruz boardwalk
beach and Twin Lakes Beach.

* Timing... through at least Thursday morning.

* Impacts... risk for dangerous rip currents and long shore break
due to southwesterly swell as high as 6 to 8 feet every 16
seconds through Thursday morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions... a beach hazard statement for
rip currents means that conditions are present to support a
heightened risk of strong rip currents. Rip currents are
typically more frequent and stronger in the vicinity of jetties...
inlets... and piers. Swimmers caught in a rip current should swim
parallel to the coast to escape the rip current before trying to
swim for shore. Swimmers should always swim near a lifeguard.
