... Beach hazards statement in effect from Monday afternoon
through Tuesday morning...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions... which is in
effect from Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning.

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

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents expected.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Manistee.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions late Monday
include... South Beach in South Haven... Grand Haven State
Park... Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... south/southwest winds will increase
Monday afternoon up north and early evening down south to 15 to
25 mph. Swim hazards will become more likely by mid afternoon up
north and early evening down south. Conditions will improve
toward daybreak Tuesday morning.

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.
