Issued: 9:50 PM CDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect through Thursday afternoon...

Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Corpus Christi has issued a high
rip current risk... which is in effect through Thursday afternoon.

* Coastal flooding... minor tidal overflow may occur late tonight
through Thursday morning along Gulf facing beaches.

* Timing... the greatest risk of flooding is expected to occur late
tonight through Thursday morning. The rip current threat will
persist through tonight and Thursday along Gulf facing beaches.

* Impacts... at 2 feet above mean sea level... several beach access
roads become flooded. Minor flooding along area beaches may
occur. Steady periods of water at the dunes may occur. Water may
flood portions of Laguna shores drive in Flour Bluff. Low lying
areas along the bays may experience minor flooding... including
North Beach. In addition... frequent life threatening rip
currents are expected. The surf is expected to become dangerous
for all levels of swimmers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

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 and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Dont 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.
