...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM MONDAY TO 6 PM AST

  waves of up to around 6 feet tonight, increasing between 10 and
  14 feet on Monday.

* WHERE...North-facing beaches of Puerto Rico.

* WHEN...For the High Surf Advisory from Monday morning through
  Tuesday afternoon. For the High Rip Current Risk through late
  Tuesday night.

* IMPACTS...Dangerous swimming conditions and localized beach
  erosion.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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 groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current, yell for help. Remain
calm, do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.
