    LIFE THREATENING WAVES AND CURRENTS ARE EXPECTED AT THE BEACHES.
    PEOPLE VISITING THE BEACHES SHOULD STAY OUT OF THE WATER.

    RIP CURRENTS ARE POWERFUL CHANNELS OF WATER FLOWING QUICKLY AWAY
    FROM SHORE, WHICH OCCUR MOST OFTEN AT LOW SPOTS OR BREAKS IN
    SANDBARS. RIP CURRENTS CAN SWEEP YOU INTO DEEPER WATER.

    STRUCTURAL CURRENTS FORM ALONG PIERS WHERE LONGSHORE CURRENTS AND
    WAVE ACTION FLOW INTO THE STRUCTURE. STRUCTURAL CURRENTS CAN
    SWEEP YOU INTO DEEPER WATER ALONG THE PIER STRUCTURE.

    EXPOSED BEACHES ARE MORE LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE THE MOST
    SIGNIFICANT WAVE AND CURRENT IMPACTS. IMPACTS AT BEACHES WITH
    PROTECTIVE BREAKWALLS OR JETTIES WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE
    ORIENTATION OF STRUCTURES AS WELL AS WIND AND WAVE DIRECTION.
