  5 to 6 feet in the surf zone. For the High Rip Current Risk,
  numerous strong and dangerous rip currents.

* WHERE...Southern Brevard, Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin,
  Coastal Volusia and Northern Brevard Counties.

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 jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs. Because of the dangerous surf conditions today, entering
the water is not recommended.
