[ARCHIVED] Alert - Rip Currents Along the Oceanfront

Swimming-Alert-sign

RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE OCEANFRONT NOW THROUGH SATURDAY

Hurricane Larry will remain far off the U.S. East Coast but large swells from the hurricane will create dangerous surf conditions along our coastline during the remainder of this week and through the weekend. 

The risk for rip currents increases Wednesday, and life-threatening rip currents are likely Thursday through Saturday.

Large breakers are expected in the surf, and steep waves are likely around inlet entrances, especially with each falling tide Thursday through Saturday.

HEED LIFEGUARD SAFETY FLAGS:

-- Green – Safe to swim

-- Yellow – Swim with caution

-- Red – Dangerous conditions, knee-deep maximum swimming depth

-- Double Red – Beach closed, no swimming

-- Purple – Dangerous aquatic life, ask a lifeguard before entering the water
