Hurricane Gaston Building New Jersey Surf

Hurricane Gaston Building New Jersey Surf

HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS TUESDAY

BUILDING SURF DUE TO HURRICANE GASTON

Even though Hurricane Gaston is over 1000 miles to the east southeast of New Jersey, we are seeing some coastal impacts developing in the form of rough surf and rip currents. The process is beginning late this afternoon and this evening and will continue into Wednesday. We also have Tropical Depression 8 off the North Carolina coast. Based on its forecast track out to sea and off shore, this could enhance rough see and surf conditions through much of this week.

VACATIONERS AND LOCALS ALIKE SHOULD BE ALERT FOR DANGEROUS RIP
CURRENTS AND SWIM ONLY IN DESIGNATED AREAS PATROLLED BY OUR

BUILD ANOTHER FOOT LATE TODAY, AND THEN POSSIBLY REACH 4 FEET,
TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY. THE BREAKERS IN THE BEACH SWIMMING ZONE
WILL LIKELY BE LARGER.

THESE SWELLS NOT ONLY ENHANCE THE POTENTIAL FOR DANGEROUS RIP
CURRENTS BUT CAN ALSO KNOCK SWIMMERS AND WADERS FLAT INTO THE
SAND, CAUSING INJURY.

SWIM ONLY IN DESIGNATED AREAS WATCHED BY THE BEACH PATROLS. THIS
WILL HELP ENSURE GREATEST SAFETY IN WHAT PROBABLY WILL BE A LONG
STRETCH OF FAIRLY ROUGH CONDITIONS ON ATLANTIC OCEAN EXPOSED BEACHES.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT IS ISSUED WHEN THREATS SUCH AS RIP
CURRENTS...LONGSHORE CURRENTS...SNEAKER WAVES AND OTHER HAZARDS
