most sensitive locations.

* Timing... street flooding is possible particularly around high
tides today. The next high tides at the Lake Worth pier are just
before 9 am this morning and again around 9 PM this evening. The
next high tides at Miami Harbor are around 930 am and 930 PM.

* Impacts... strong rip currents... will be present along the
Atlantic beaches through the weekend. Minor tidal inundation
is possible... resulting in flooding of local roads and poorly
drained locales.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
