... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Jacksonville has issued a high
rip current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... through this evening.

* Impacts... life threatening rip currents are likely in the surf
zone. Rough surf may also knock you down. Remember to heed the
advice of the local beach patrol and flag warning systems.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents will be life threatening.

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. Do not attempt to save
someone in peril if you do not know how to escape rip currents
