RIP CURRENT STATEMENT

Coastal Hazard Message

National Weather Service Tallahassee FL

1114 AM EDT Fri Sep 7 2018

…HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK FOR FRANKLIN COUNTY…

…HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING…

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a High Rip

Current Risk, which is in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening.

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.
