...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...
* WHAT...Dangerous rip currents.
* WHERE...Southern Nassau, Southern Queens, Kings (Brooklyn),
Southeast Suffolk and Southwest Suffolk Counties.
* WHEN...Through this evening.
* IMPACTS...Life-threatening rip currents are likely for all
people entering the surf zone. Anyone visiting the beaches
should stay out of the surf. Rip currents can sweep even the
best swimmers away from shore into deeper water. In addition,
water temps remain in the upper 50s. So please be prepared
for the danger of cold water immersion.
If you enter the surf zone, always have a flotation device with
you and swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax
and float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in
a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face
the shore and yell or wave for help. Also, wear cold water
protection, like a wetsuit or drysuit if you plan on spending
time in the water.
