Beach Hazard Statement, Air Quality Alert

Statement as of 12:07 PM EDT on July 22, 2014


... Beach hazards statement now in effect through late Wednesday
night...

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

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from Grand Haven to Manistee.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions today and
Wednesday include...

Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon today...

on Wednesday... the high impact beaches will shift to the north
side of piers including Stearns Park in Ludington... Mears State
Park and Muskegon State Park.

* Overview/potential impacts... strong southerly winds of 15 to 30
mph will build waves into the 3 to 6 foot range today... with the
highest waves located towards Ludington. The south flow will
result in strong longshore currents and where they intercept
piers... structural currents will form. High wave action will
make swimming dangerous. Winds will swing around to the north
tonight and Wednesday and large waves will continue in the 3 to
6 foot range through Wednesday. Large waves and dangerous
swimming conditions are ongoing at midday Tuesday and will
continue through sunset on Wednesday.

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.
