La Porte-
329 AM CDT Fri Aug 23 2019

...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...

* HIGH WAVE ACTION AND DANGEROUS SWIMMING CONDITIONS EXPECTED...

* STRONG STRUCTURAL CURRENTS EXPECTED...

* STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENTS EXPECTED...

* STRONG RIP CURRENTS EXPECTED...

* OVERVIEW/POTENTIAL IMPACTS...Northeast winds 5 to 10 mph
  becoming north at 10 to 15 mph this afternoon. Expect a strong
  longshore current. Strong structural currents are also expected,
  particularly on the north side of piers and breakwalls. Strong
  rip currents are also expected within the sandbars. Waves will
  range from 2 to 5 feet.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Life threatening waves and currents are expected at the beaches.
People visiting the beaches should stay out of the water.

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.

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.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from the shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in
sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water.
