Rip currents can pull even the strongest swimmers away from shore. 80% of rescues performed by beach lifeguards are related to rip currents. Rip currents are channeled currents of water flowing away from shore, usually extending past the line of breaking waves. The National Weather Service provides rip current forecasts for our area.
