Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:08 PM EDT Aug. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect from Sunday morning through
Sunday evening...

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a beach
hazards statement... which is in effect from Sunday morning
through Sunday evening.

* High wave action... strong currents and dangerous swimming
conditions expected.

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Grand Haven to Manistee

* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include... Grand
Haven State Park and Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon

* overview/potential impacts... south/southwest wind 15 to 25 knots
will generate 3 to 5 foot waves from late morning into the
evening north of Grand Haven. Strong longshore and structural
currents are both expected. Piers may also be over topped due to
High Lake levels.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

High wave action makes swimming difficult and can tire even a
strong swimmer quickly.

Structural currents form along piers where longshore currents and
wave action flow into the structure. Structural currents can
sweep you out into deeper water along the pier structure.

A longshore current is a lake current that moves parallel to
shore. Longshore currents can be strong enough to prevent
swimmers from being able to keep their feet on the bottom...
making it difficult to return to shore.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
