Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 12:34 PM EDT on September 30, 2016

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on September 30, 2016


... High rip current risk remains in effect until 6 PM EDT this
evening...

* location... the New Jersey shore and Delaware beaches.

* Risk of rip currents... there is a high risk of dangerous rip
currents through tonight. Another advisory may be issued at 330
PM for this evenings high tide cycle but if its issued... the
advisory will be for less tidal inundation flooding than what
occurred this morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. A high risk of rip currents
implies that wind and/or wave conditions will support the
development of very strong rip currents. These rip currents will
be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf.

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... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... 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.
