    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    HIGH WAVE ACTION MAKES SWIMMING DIFFICULT AND CAN TIRE EVEN A
    STRONG SWIMMER QUICKLY.

    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.

    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.
