Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:54 AM EDT Aug. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk in effect from late this afternoon
through this evening...

The National Weather Service in New York NY has issued a high rip
current risk, which is in effect from late this afternoon through
this evening.

* Locations... Kings (brooklyn), southwestern Suffolk,
southeastern Suffolk, southern Queens and southern Nassau.

* Timing... from late this afternoon through this evening.

* Surf zone impacts... very strong rip currents will be dangerous
to anyone who enters the surf.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars and near structures such as groins, jetties, and piers.
Talk to lifeguards and beach officials to learn about any surf
hazards and heed their advice. Pay attention to flags and posted
signs and swim in life guarded areas.

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 call or wave for help.





Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:58 AM EDT Aug. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect until 8 PM EDT Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a heat advisory,
which is in effect until 8 PM EDT Thursday.

* Heat index values... around 95.

* Timing... today and Thursday.

* Impacts... extreme heat can cause illness and death among at-
risk population who cannot stay cool. The heat and humidity
may cause heat stress during outdoor exertion or extended
exposure.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory is issued when the combination of heat and
humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 95 to 99 degrees
for two or more consecutive days, or 100 to 104 degrees for any
length of time.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.
