    ...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM EST THIS MORNING
    THROUGH THIS EVENING...

    The National Weather Service in Tampa Bay Ruskin has issued a
    High Rip Current Risk, which is in effect from 10 AM EST this
    morning through this evening.

    * RIP CURRENT TIMING...Increasing wave action will create rip
    currents this morning through this evening.

    * RIP CURRENT IMPACTS...Strong rip currents will be hazardous for
    those in the surf zone along area beaches today and this
    evening.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    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. For maximum safety...swim near a lifeguard.
    Pay attention to flags and signs.

    If you become caught in a rip current...yell for help. Remain
    calm...do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
    help. If you have to swim out of a rip current...swim parallel to
    shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
    swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
