High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 4:28 PM EDT on September 25, 2017

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on September 27, 2017


... High surf advisory now in effect until 6 PM EDT Wednesday...

* location... along ocean exposed beaches on the south coasts of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

* Timing... through Wednesday.

* Surf and rip current risk... long period southerly swells from
distant Hurricane Maria will continue to increase as they push
across the south coastal waters through Wednesday. This will
result in high surf along the ocean exposed coastline and a high
risk of dangerous rip currents.

* Shoreline impacts... areas of beach erosion.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A rip current... sometimes mistakenly called an undertow... is a
strong but narrow current of water flowing from the beach to the
surf zone. It can rapidly carry a swimmer into deeper water... and
exhaust an individual trying to swim against it.

In addition... viewers of large surf should stay in safe areas
well away from possible splashover. Individual waves may be more
than twice the average wave height... which can sweep a person
into the water from what may seem to be a safe viewing area.
Falling into turbulent and sometimes Rocky Waters can result in
injury that reduces the chance of survival.
