expected. For the coastal flood statement, isolated minor
coastal flooding possible.

* IMPACTS...Some water on low lying roads and property. Life-
threatening rip currents are likely for all people entering

from shore into deeper water.

you and swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax
and float, and do not swim against the current. If able, swim in
a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face
the shore and yell or wave for help.
