Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 11:30 AM EDT on July 07, 2015

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on July 07, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 11 PM EDT this
evening...

* high wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Grand Haven to Manistee.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions this afternoon
and evening include...

Stearns Park in Ludington...
Mears State Park in Pentwater and
Muskegon State Park.

* Overview/potential impacts... north winds of 20 to 30 mph this
afternoon will diminish to 10 to 20 mph this evening. Expect
waves of 3 to 5 feet this afternoon and evening. Winds and waves
will subside overnight. A high swim risk is expected due to high
winds and waves causing strong long shore and strucural
currrents.

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.
