Coastal Hazard Statement

  • Statement as of 4:39 PM EDT on July 29, 2015


    ... High rip current risk in effect from Thursday morning through
    Thursday evening...

    The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a high rip
    current risk... which is in effect from Thursday morning through
    Thursday evening.

    * Locations... ocean beaches of New York City and Long Island.

    * Rip current risk... high

    * surf height... 3 to 5 ft.

    * Lightning risk... high

    * timing... through the day and into the evening... with the
    highest risk in the afternoon and early 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... 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. Once you are away from the force of the rip current...
    begin to swim back toward the beach. Do not attempt to swim
    directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
