/O.EXT.KBOX.SU.Y.0008.000000T0000Z-170922T2200Z/
EASTERN ESSEX MA-SOUTHERN BRISTOL MA-WASHINGTON RI-NEWPORT RI-
1242 PM EDT WED SEP 20 2017

...HIGH SURF ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM EDT FRIDAY...

* LOCATION...ALONG THE RHODE ISLAND OCEAN EXPOSED COAST FROM
  WESTERLY TO NEWPORT AND TO THE WESTPORT SHORELINE IN
  MASSACHUSETTS. ALSO ALONG THE ESSEX COUNTY OCEAN EXPOSED
  COASTLINE OF NORTHEAST MASSACHUSETTS FROM SWAMPSCOTT TO
  SALISBURY.

* TIMING...THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT.

* SURF AND RIP CURRENT RISK...LARGE WAVES FROM JOSE WILL RESULT IN
  HIGH SURF ALONG THE OCEAN EXPOSED COASTLINE. THIS WILL ALSO
  LEAD TO DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS.

* SHORELINE IMPACTS... BEACH EROSION WILL PERSIST.

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 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.

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.
