... Beach hazards statement in effect from 6 am EDT this morning
through this evening...
The National Weather Service in Melbourne has issued a beach
hazards statement for rough surf and rip currents from 6 am EDT
this morning through this evening.
* Hazards... rough surf along with rip currents at area beaches.
* Timing... rough surf and rip currents will be present through
* Location... the beaches of Volusia, Brevard, Indian River, Saint
Lucie and Martin counties.
* Potential impacts... rough pounding surf and life threatening
rip currents are possible.
Rough surf can often be more dangerous than it appears while
standing on the beach. Heavy breaking waves can knock you off a
sandbar into deeper water or into a rip current. If caught in a
rip current remain calm. Don't fight the current. Swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape... face the
shore and call or wave for help. If tired, float or tread water
until out of the rip current.
