PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
STRUCTURAL CURRENTS FORM ALONG PIERS WHERE LONGSHORE CURRENTS AND  
WAVE ACTION FLOW INTO THE STRUCTURE. STRUCTURAL CURRENTS CAN  
SWEEP YOU OUT INTO DEEPER WATER ALONG THE PIER STRUCTURE.  
 
A LONGSHORE CURRENT IS A LAKE CURRENT THAT MOVES PARALLEL TO  
SHORE. LONGSHORE CURRENTS CAN BE STRONG ENOUGH TO PREVENT  
SWIMMERS FROM BEING ABLE TO KEEP THEIR FEET ON THE BOTTOM, MAKING  
IT DIFFICULT TO RETURN TO SHORE.  
 
RIP CURRENTS ARE POWERFUL CHANNELS OF WATER FLOWING QUICKLY AWAY  
FROM SHORE, WHICH OCCUR MOST OFTEN AT LOW SPOTS OR BREAKS IN  
SANDBARS. RIP CURRENTS CAN SWEEP YOU INTO DEEPER WATER.
