Statement as of 7:05 AM EDT on April 18, 2014

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 18, 2014


... High rip current risk in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.

* Timing... through this evening.

* Impacts... hazardous swimming conditions are expected along the
Atlantic coast beaches in Palm Beach... Broward... and Miami-Dade
counties.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of 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 and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain
calm and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from
the force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach.
Do not attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a
strong swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
