Coastal Hazard Statement

Date: 7:31 PM CST on November 24, 2014

Expires: 6:00 PM CST on November 25, 2014

...High rip current risk remains in effect through Tuesday afternoon... * timing...today through Tuesday afternoon. * Winds...northwest to north increasing to 15 to 20 mph tonight and persisting through Tuesday. * Impacts...more frequent...dangerous to potentially deadly rip currents along the beaches of Alabama and northwest Florida through early Tuesday...but threat gradually diminishing. Precautionary/preparedness actions... There is a high risk of rip currents. 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. If you become caught in a rip current...do not panic. Remain calm and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the force of the rip current...begin to swim back to the beach. Do not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
