  • What to do if you're caught in a rip current

    What to do if you're caught in a rip current

    Wednesday, August 27 2014 7:14 PM EDT2014-08-27 23:14:06 GMT
    A warning if you're hitting the beach this summer -- rip currents could be a problem. Rip currents can carry away even strong swimmers, so don't take chances when red flags are up and/or life guards aren't on duty. Rip currents are powerful, channeled currents of water flowing away from shore. They typically extend from the shoreline, through the surf zone, and past the line of breaking waves. Rip currents can occur at any beach with breaking waves, including the Great Lakes.

    Swimmers and lifeguards are facing a high risk for rip currents along New Jersey beaches. The National Weather Service says Hurricane Cristobal is predicted to pass well to the southeast of the New Jersey coast on Wednesday night. Long period swells will spread out from the storm, churning up the surf along Jersey shore beaches.

    Swimmers are urged to use caution along the Jersey shore. A high risk for rip currents is in effect through Monday evening. The National Weather Service says a surf height of 3 to 5 feet along with the wind will combine to create dangerous swimming conditions. Swimmers are advised to listen to lifeguards and not swim at unguarded beaches.
