... Beach hazards statement in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a beach
hazards statement for rough surf, which is in effect through this
evening.

* Hazards... breezy east winds and a building ocean swell will
create rough surf along with dangerous rip currents in the surf
zone.

* Timing... expect rough surf and rip currents through the day.

* Location... along the beaches of Volusia, Brevard, Indian River,
Saint Lucie and Martin counties.

* Potential impacts... rough surf can be more dangerous than it
appears while standing on the beach. Heavy breaking waves can
knock you off a sandbar into deeper water or into strong
currents.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
