Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:22 AM EDT on September 25, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on September 25, 2016


... 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 threat for strong and dangerous rip currents will
be in place all day, however, it will be highest this morning
and again this evening due to tidal effects.

* Impacts... a lingering east swell from distant tropical cyclone
Karl will result in a high risk for rip currents along the
beaches of east central Florida. The seaward pull of a rip
current can be life threatening. Those that venture into the
water and surf zone should not be caught unaware.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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... beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... remain calm and Yell for
help. Do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
