Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 9:41 AM EDT on July 24, 2016

Expires 5:00 PM EDT on July 24, 2016


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 5 PM EDT this
afternoon...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Muskegon to Manistee

* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today include...

Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... south to southwest winds will
increase this morning to 20 to 30 mph. This will cause the
waves to build to 3 to 5 feet... resulting in hazardous
swimming conditions. Conditions will gradually improve later
this afternoon and evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
