High surf, risky rip currents seen

A high surf advisory remains in effect from 6am Thursday to 6pm Sunday along north facing reefs. A high risk of rip currents is also present.

Surf has currently diminished below advisory criteria but it will build back on Thursday to between 9 and 13 feet along north facing reefs of the Marianas. Dangerous rip currents expected.

These will create dangerous swimming and surfing conditions and localized beach erosion. Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water. (PR)
