Expires 4:00 PM EST on February 06, 2016


... High rip current risk remains in effect through this afternoon...

* location... Atlantic beaches of Puerto Rico... Culebra and
northern U.S. Virgin Islands.

* Timing... through this afternoon.

* Impacts... dangerous currents making hazardous swimming
conditions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
