Beach Hazard Statement, Air Quality Alert

Statement as of 3:55 PM EDT on July 22, 2014


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect from 2 am EDT
Wednesday through Thursday morning...

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

* Strong structural currents expected.

* Strong longshore currents expected.

* Rip currents possible.

* Location... beaches from St. Joseph to Grand Haven.

* Beaches with particularly dangerous conditions expected
Wednesday include...

North Beach in South Haven...
Holland State Park...
Muskegon State Park...
Mears State Park in Pentwater...
Stearns Park in Ludington.

* Overview/potential impacts... winds will shift to the north
behind a cold front tonight and increase into the 15 to 30 mph
range. These winds will build waves into the 4 to 7 foot range
between St. Joe and Grand Haven during the Wednesday beach day.
Dangerous swimming conditions will be found on the north side of
piers Wednesday. The impact will be mitigated somewhat by the
fact that it will not be a great beach day with cooler air
temperatures.

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.
