    Severe Weather Alerts - Edgartown, MA

    • High Surf Advisory

      High Surf Advisory in effect until 8:00 PM EDT. Source: U.S. National Weather Service

    ...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

    * LOCATION...OCEAN EXPOSED BEACHES ALONG THE SOUTH COAST.

    * TIMING...THROUGH 8 PM THIS EVENING.

    * SURF AND RIP CURRENT RISK...SEAS UP TO 7 FEET JUST OFFSHORE WILL RESULT IN
    HIGH SURF AND AN INCREASED RISK FOR DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS.

    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 A POOR SWIMMER AND 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.

    HEED THE ADVICE OF THE BEACH PATROL AND SWIM ONLY AT GUARDED BEACHES. BE
    ESPECIALLY CAUTIOUS NEAR PIERS AND JETTIES...WHERE RIP CURRENTS CAN BE
    ENHANCED.

    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.
