...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

* WHAT...Please check with state and local authorities regarding
  guidelines for allowed activities. The warm air temperatures in
  the 70s may cause people to underestimate the dangers of the
  cold water temperatures which are currently only in the mid to
  upper 50s.

* WHERE...In New Hampshire, Coastal Rockingham County. In Maine,
  Coastal Waldo, Coastal Cumberland, Sagadahoc, Lincoln, Knox
  and Coastal York Counties.

* WHEN...From 7 AM EDT this morning through this evening.

* IMPACTS...The cold water temperatures can quickly cause
  hypothermia to anyone immersed in the water. When the water
  temperature is below 60 degrees, the average submerged person
  could lose dexterity within minutes and be unable to accomplish
  simple tasks. Anyone on boats or paddlecraft should use extreme
  caution to avoid this threat.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Beach Hazards Statement is issued on days when a significant
number of boats and paddlecraft are expected to be out on the
water and when warm air temperatures may cause people to
underestimate the danger of the cold water. Paddle smart from the
start. Always wear your life jacket. Be aware of wind conditions,
tides, and localized currents.
