... Beach hazards statement in effect through Monday evening...

The National Weather Service in San Diego has issued a beach
hazards statement for strong rip currents... which is in
effect through Monday evening.

* Waves and surf... 2 to 4 feet with sets to 5 feet.

* Rip currents... strong rip and longshore currents along Orange
and San Diego County beaches through early Monday evening.

* Timing... through early Monday evening.

* Impacts... strong rip and longshore currents... and possibly some
localized elevated surf... will result in dangerous swimming
conditions during the Labor Day Holiday weekend.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement for rip currents means that conditions
are present to support a heightened risk of strong rip currents.
Rip currents are typically more frequent and stronger in the
vicinity of jetties... inlets... and piers. Swimmers caught in a rip
current should swim parallel to the coast to escape the rip
current before trying to swim for shore. Swimmers should always
talk to a lifeguard before entering the water and also swim near a
lifeguard.
