Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:37 PM EDT Jul. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect from Thursday morning
through Friday evening...

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

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

* Strong structural currents possible

* strong longshore currents expected

* rip currents possible

* location... beaches from Holland to Manistee

* beaches with particularly dangerous conditions include...

South Beach in South Haven...
Grand Haven State Park...
Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon.

* Overview/potential impacts... southerly winds will increase
Thursday morning and last through Friday. This will create
dangerous conditions for swimmers as large waves and strong
currents develop.

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.
