COMMUNITY BRIEFS – March 27, 2023

Posted on Mar 27 2023


Rip currents seen until tonight

The public is being warned that there is a high risk of rip currents through Monday night along east facing reefs of the Marianas, based on the information received from the National Weather Service in Guam and compiled at the CNMI Emergency Operations Center State Warning Point.
Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water. The public is advised to stay out of the water along east facing reef lines. Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don’t swim against the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help. (PR)
