...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH
SUNDAY EVENING...

* WHAT...Dangerous rip currents expected.

* WHERE...Kings (Brooklyn), Southern Queens and Southern Nassau
  Counties.

* WHEN...From Sunday morning through Sunday evening.

* IMPACTS...Life-threatening rip currents are likely for all
  people entering the surf zone. Anyone visiting the beaches
  should stay out of the surf. Rip currents can sweep even the
  best swimmers away from shore into deeper water.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Increasing southerly flow in the late
  morning which will continue into the afternoon and evening hours
  will create a high risk of rip currents.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If you enter the surf zone, always have a flotation device with
you and swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax
and float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in
a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face
the shore and yell or wave for help.
