[ARCHIVED] Dangerous Rip Current Risk in Effect for all Pinellas County Beaches

There is a high risk of RIP currents for Indian Shores and adjacent beaches.

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 vicinity.

What to Do if Caught in a Rip Current?
- Do not fight the current, stay calm
- Swim out of the current parallel to the shore or at a 45 degree angle
- If unable to escape a current, float or tread water until taken into calmer, open water
- Call out for help or wave for assistance
