THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN MELBOURNE HAS ISSUED A BEACH

* POTENTIAL IMPACTS...ROUGH SURF WILL CAUSE HAZARDOUS SWIMMING
  CONDITIONS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES. THERE WILL BE A RISK
  OF STRONG RIP CURRENTS NEAR JETTIES AND PIERS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
A BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT IS ISSUED WHEN THREATS SUCH AS ROUGH
SURF...RIP CURRENTS AND OTHER HAZARDS CREATE LIFE-THREATENING
CONDITIONS IN THE SURF ZONE. CAUTION SHOULD BE USED WHEN IN OR
NEAR THE WATER.

THE BEST SAFETY ADVICE IS TO ONLY ENTER THE SURF NEAR A LIFEGUARD.
ROUGH SURF CAN OFTEN BE MUCH MORE DANGEROUS THAN IT APPEARS

IF YOU BECOME CAUGHT IN A CURRENT...NEVER ATTEMPT TO SWIM

WATER AND SWIM AT AN ANGLE AWAY FROM THE CURRENT. THEN ONCE OUT OF
THE CURRENT...SWIM DIRECTLY BACK TOWARD THE BEACH.
