High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 10:11 PM EDT on September 19, 2017

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on September 22, 2017


... High surf advisory remains in effect until 8 am EDT Friday...

* location... along the Rhode Island ocean exposed coast from
westerly to Newport and along the Westport shoreline in
Massachusetts.

* Timing... through Thursday night.

* Surf and rip current risk... large waves from Jose will result
in high surf along the northeastern Massachusetts coastline.
This will also lead to dangerous rip currents.

* Shoreline impacts...

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

If you are a poor swimmer and are caught in a rip current... swim
parallel to the beach until out of its pull... then swim back to
shore. Another means of escape for good swimmers is to ride the
current out until it dissipates... then swim back to shore outside
of the rip current.

Do not attempt to swim directly into the rip current... it can
exhaust and drown even the strongest swimmer.

Heed the advice of the beach patrol and swim only at guarded
beaches. Be especially cautious near piers and jetties... where
rip currents can be enhanced.

In addition... viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas
well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more
than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a person
into the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area.
Falling into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in
injury that reduces the chance of survival.



Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
