rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away

sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
swim near a lifeguard. 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.
