... High surf advisory remains in effect until 7 PM EDT this
evening...
... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...
... High rip current risk remains in effect through this evening...

* location... for the high surf advisory, beach hazards
statement, and high rip current risk, ocean side beaches of
Virginia Beach. For the coastal flood advisory, the southern
shore of the Chesapeake Bay.

* Timing... for the high surf advisory, until 7 PM EDT this
evening. For the coastal flood advisory, until 5 PM EDT this
afternoon. For the beach hazards statement, through this

* Coastal flood impacts... up to one half foot of inundation
above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near
shorelines and tidal waterways.

* Shoreline impacts... large breaking waves of 6 to 8 ft will
result in dangerous surf conditions. Do not enter or approach
the water due to the risk of being swept away.

* Surf or rip current risk... there is a high risk of rip
currents.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area... producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

A coastal flood advisory means that onshore winds... wave action
and/or tides will combine to create flooding of low areas along
the shore... and near tidal rivers and creeks. Be prepared for the
possibility of Road closures and minor flooding of properties. If
travel is necessary... do not attempt to drive through water of
unknown depth.

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water.

There is a high risk of rip currents.

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 jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards... beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... relax and float. Don't
swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following
the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or
wave for help.


Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
