Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 5:14 AM CST on November 23, 2014

Expires 7:00 AM EST on November 24, 2014


... High rip current risk remains in effect through late tonight...

* timing... through late tonight.

* Winds... east northeast this morning increasing to 15 to 25 mph and
becoming more south to southwest during the day. Frequent higher gusts.

* Impacts... more frequent... dangerous to potentially deadly rip
currents along the beaches of Alabama and northwest Florida

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.
