Coastal Flood Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:27 AM EST Jan. 23, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Coastal flood advisory in effect until 7 am EST Thursday...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through Thursday
morning...

The National Weather Service in Tallahassee has issued a coastal
flood advisory, which is in effect until 7 am EST Thursday.

* Surf... 3 to 5 feet through Thursday.

* Coastal flooding... minor coastal flooding with inundation values
of 1 to 2 feet through early Thursday morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current, Yell for help. Remain
calm, do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.
