...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE TONIGHT... * WHAT...Dangerous rip currents and rough surf expected. * WHERE...Along the beaches of Volusia, Brevard, Indian River, Saint Lucie and Martin Counties. * WHEN...Through late tonight. * IMPACTS...Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Swimmers should remain out of the ocean due to the HIGH risk of life threatening 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 jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and signs. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help. &&
