...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

Southwest winds at 15 to 20 mph, with higher gusts, will continue this
afternoon at all east-facing beaches. This will produce strong south
to north longshore currents.

Longshore currents can sweep swimmers and surfers into rip currents,
piers, jetties, and other hazardous areas. Often, if the longshore
current is strong enough, it will sweep swimmers off their feet,
making it difficult to return to shore.
