Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:38 AM EDT Jul. 16, 2018 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a high rip
current risk, which is in effect through this evening. The number
of people rescued along Volusia County beaches during the past
week has exceeded 500. Lingering swells will continue this high
risk today.

* Timing... the threat for dangerous rip currents will be present
all day, however the risk will be particularly high from about
230 PM through 830 PM, surrounding the time of low tide.

* Impacts... rip currents will be dangerous and life threatening.
Numerous water rescues have occurred over the past several days,
with similar strong rip current conditions expected today. Even
if the beaches are crowded, you are better off there rather
than going to a secluded spot where no lifeguards are present to
Rescue you from life threatening rip currents.

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... beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don't swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
