...beach hazards statement remains in effect through thursday
morning...
* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.
* strong structural currents expected.
* strong longshore currents expected.
* rip currents possible.
* location...beaches from st. joseph to grand haven.
* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions expected
wednesday include...north beach in south haven...holland state
park.
* overview/potential impacts...north to northwest winds 15 to 25
mph with waves of 4 to 7 feet will create hazardous swimming
conditions. the north side of piers will be especially dangerous
today and tonight as strong structural currents are expected to
develop. additionally... long shore currents are expected away
from the piers.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
high wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.
structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.
a longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.
rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
