...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH FRIDAY
EVENING...

* WHAT...Life-threatening waves and currents are expected this
  morning into Friday evening. Strong to severe storms crossing
  Lake Michigan could cause water level fluctuations that
  continue through the day today. These water level fluctuations
  will increase the likelihood of dangerous current development,
  even during periods of low wave heights. Wave heights will
  build through the day and remain high through Friday.

* WHERE...In Indiana, La Porte county. In Michigan, Berrien
  county.

* WHEN...Through Friday evening.

* IMPACTS...Life-threatening rip and structural currents can
  pull swimmers into deeper water. High waves can sweep people
  off piers.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Southwest winds this morning will shift
  north at 15 to 25 mph later today into Friday morning. Wave
  direction will remain out of the north through Friday evening.
  Despite subsiding wave heights on Friday afternoon, dangerous
  currents may still be present due to wave periods of 6 to 7
  seconds.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Remain out of the water to avoid hazardous swimming conditions.
Do not venture out on piers.
