High risk of rip currents for the Marianas

(Guam Homeland Security/Office of Civil Defense) — The National Weather Service-Guam Weather Forecast Office has advised that trade-wind swell will maintain a high risk of rip currents for Guam, Rota, Tinian, and Saipan through early Monday morning, especially on east-facing reefs.

If caught in a rip current, yell for help. Remain calm and stay afloat while waiting for help. If swimming 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. Rip currents will be life-threatening.

The Offices of Guam Homeland Security and Civil Defense remind residents and visitors to avoid east-facing reefs and beaches until hazardous conditions subside.
