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

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

* Locations... Atlantic Ocean facing beaches

* rip current risk... high.

* Surf height... 4 to 6 feet.

* Lightning risk... none.

* Timing... into this evening.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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. Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to
learn about any surf hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention
to flags and posted signs and swim in life guarded areas.

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.
