    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
    will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

    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.



    Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
