tributaries and along area beaches.

* Waves and surf... surf will build to 5 to 7 feet.

* Impacts... river and creek flooding around the times of high tide
will cause minor flooding of mainly Parks, campgrounds, docks
and boat ramps and along some area Atlantic beaches. Strong rip
currents and rough surf are expected at area beaches as well.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach
erosion.

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents will be life threatening.

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. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol.
Pay attention to flags and posted signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave
for help. If tired, float or tread water until out of the rip
current.
