Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 2:58 AM EDT on August 03, 2015

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on August 03, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 8 am EDT this
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 early this
morning include... South Beach in South Haven... Grand Haven
State Park... Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... northwest winds 10 to 15 mph along
with waves of 3 to 5 feet... diminishing to 2 to 4 feet later
this 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.
