PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Beach Hazards Statement means the potential for dangerous
conditions exist due to sneaker waves and strong rip currents.
These waves can suddenly sweep unsuspecting people into the ocean
if too close to the ocean`s edge, please stay well back from
these dangerous conditions. Cold water shock is also a potential
life threatening situation causing involuntary gasp reflexes which
can cause drowning. Due to strong rip currents it is also best to
remain out of the water to avoid hazardous swimming conditions.
