Rip Current Statement<span-size:13.0pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black"> Coastal Hazard Message National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 915 AM CST Sat Feb 9 2019   ...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...   .There is a high risk of strong rip currents along Gulf facing beaches through this evening.   TXZ436>438-100400- /O.NEW.KHGX.RP.S.0002.190209T1515Z-190210T0400Z/ Brazoria Islands-Galveston Island and Bolivar Peninsula- Matagorda Islands- 915 AM CST Sat Feb 9 2019   ...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING...   The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a High Rip Current Risk, which is in effect through this evening.   * TIMING...Through this evening.   * IMPACTS...Strong rip currents along Gulf facing beaches.   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...   There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip currents are likely in the surf zone.   Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from shore...which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards...beach patrol...flags and signs. Swim near a lifeguard.   If you become caught in a rip current...yell for help. Remain calm...do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for help. If you have to swim out of a rip current...swim parallel to shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.   &&   $$
