Coastal Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:37 AM CDT on May 27, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 28, 2016


... High rip current risk in effect through Saturday evening...

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

* Timing... this morning through Saturday afternoon.

* Impacts... the Memorial Day weekend will bring large numbers of
people to South Padre Island beginning today as very warm
temperatures prevail across the area. The rip current hazardwill
be dangerous for poor swimmers who are not equipped to enter the
water and safely navigate strong rip currents in the surf
offshore.

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 groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol
flags and signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
