Rip Currents

September 12, 2017


The Dynamic Great Lakes Blog

Rip currents form offshore in a narrow channel. These currents can extend 1,000 feet, reach 100 feet in width, and travel up to 5 mph. This is slower than you can run, but faster than you or even an Olympic swimmer can swim. They are most prevalent after storms; some lasting a few hours, some (especially on the oceans) permanently.

■Don’t fight the current.

■Swim parallel to the shore to get out of the current. Rip currents are rarely more than 30 feet wide.

■If you can’t escape, float calmly until the current dissipates, then swim diagonally back to the shore.

■If you need help, call or wave for assistance.

Recognize a Rip Current:

■Murky water from sediments stirred up by the current.

■Different waves – larger and choppier.

■Foam or objects that move steadily offshore.

I wrote The Dynamic Great Lakes to show that we really can correct mistakes made in the past.  The return of eagles, peregrine falcons and ospreys to the Great Lakes and the U.S.A. proves it.
