Watches & Warnings

High Surf Advisory
Issued: 10:24 PM EDT Sep. 21, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 6 am EDT Saturday...

* location... along the Rhode Island ocean exposed coast from
westerly to Newport and to the Westport shoreline in
Massachusetts. Also along the Essex County ocean exposed
coastline of northeast Massachusetts from Swampscott to
Salisbury.

* Timing... through Friday.

* Surf and rip current risk... large waves from Jose will result
in high surf along the ocean exposed coastline. This will also
lead to dangerous rip currents.

* Shoreline impacts... areas of lingering 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.

If you are caught in a rip current... swim parallel to the beach
until out of its pull... then swim back to shore. Another means of
escape for good swimmers is to ride the current out until it
dissipates... then swim back to shore outside of the rip current.

Do not attempt to swim directly into the rip current... it can
exhaust and drown even the strongest swimmer.

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.



Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
