For the Beach Hazards Statement, through Thursday evening. For the High Surf Advisory, from 7 PM Thursday to noon EDT Friday…Breaking waves of 3 to 5 ft through tonight will result in rough surf conditions and a high risk of rip currents. Large breaking waves of 6 to 8 ft Thursday will result in dangerous surf conditions. Do not enter or approach the water due to the risk of being swept away.

All swimmers should remain out of the water due to dangerous surf conditions. Life-threatening rip currents could be fatal. If you are ever caught in a rip current, it is important to swim parallel to shore to escape the current, before trying to head back to shore.
