Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 11:42 AM CDT on July 01, 2015

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on July 01, 2015


... Beach hazards statement in effect until 8 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Chicago has issued a beach
hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions... which is in
effect until 8 PM CDT this evening.

* High wave action and dangerous swimming conditions expected.

* Forecast wave heights... 3 to 5 feet.

* Strong rip currents and structural currents expected.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Structural currents form along piers where longshore
currents and wave action flow into the structure. Rip currents
and structural currents can sweep you into deeper water.

Exposed beaches are more likely to experience the most
significant wave and current impacts.

Impacts at beaches with protective breakwalls or jetties will be
subject to orientation of structures as well as wind and wave
direction.
