High Surf Advisory

Statement as of 4:16 PM EDT on September 26, 2017

Expires 6:00 PM EDT on September 28, 2017


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

* location... ocean exposed beaches on the south coasts of
Massachusetts and Rhode Island including Cape Cod and the
islands.

* Timing... through Thursday.

* Surf and rip current risk... long period southerly swells from
distant Hurricane Maria will result in high surf and a high risk
of dangerous rip currents through Wednesday. Swell heights of 7
to 11 ft with periods of 10 to 15 seconds will continue through
Thursday.

* Shoreline impacts... 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. Large
breakers on area beaches along with some minor 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.
