The National Weather Service in San Juan has issued a high surf
advisory... which is in effect until 8 am AST Saturday.

* Waves and surf... seas 6-8 feet and breaking waves of 8 to 10

* Location... north facing beaches of Puerto Rico.

* Timing... through at least Saturday morning.

* Impacts... strong rip currents will create dangerous swimming

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain
calm... do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

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