Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:12 PM CDT Aug. 23, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect until 10 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Milwaukee/Sullivan has issued a
beach hazards statement for dangerous swimming conditions... which
is in effect until 10 PM CDT this evening.

* High wave action... large waves and dangerous currents are
expected. Conditions are life threatening.

* Strong structural currents... expected.

* Strong longshore currents... expected.

* Rip currents... possible.

* Location... beaches from Sheboygan to Port Washington. Beaches
with particularly dangerous conditions include... general King
Park beach in Sheboygan... Kohler andrae beaches... Upper Lake
park beach in Port Washington... Harrington State Park beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.
