... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Jacksonville has issued a high
rip current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... from early this morning through this evening.

* Impacts... rip currents will be life threatening. Rough surf near
3 to 4 feet is also expected which can knock you down. Longshore
currents may be strong and push you into rip currents.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents will be life threatening.

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 groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol.
Pay attention to flags and posted signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
current.
