It's Rip Tide Awareness Week!

Did you know that Rip Tide Awareness Week is June 5-11, 2016? If you ever go to the beach there are things you need to know about rip tides and currents. Your life or a family members could depend on it. The followin information is from the NOAA site because there's no substitute for knowledge. Know what to do if you or a family member ever encounters a rip current and you’ll be able to disengage from it to enjoy the rest of your vacation.   For families that are planning a trip to the beach this summer, it is important to realize the dangers of rip currents before swimming in the ocean. The majority of fatalities from rip currents each year are those visiting from other areas.

 

Rip currents are powerful currents of water moving away from shore and are the leading surf hazard for all beachgoers, especially for non-swimmers. According to the United States Lifesaving Association, 80 percent of surf beach rescues are a result of rip currents. In addition, more than 100 people die annually from drowning when they are unable to escape a rip current.

Rip currents form when waves break near the shoreline, piling up water between the breaking waves at the beach. One of the ways this water returns to sea is to form a rip current, a narrow jet of water that moves swiftly offshore, roughly perpendicular to the shoreline. Under most tide and sea conditions the speeds are relatively slow, however when wave, tide and beach conditions are right, the speeds can quickly increase to become dangerous to anyone entering the surf, even the most experienced swimmers.

Rip currents can be very narrow or extend in widths to hundreds of yards. The seaward pull of rip currents varies from just beyond the line of breaking waves to hundreds of yards offshore.  

Some of the clues you can use to identify rip currents include:

    ~ a channel of churning or choppy water,

    ~ an area having a notable difference in water color,

    ~ a line of foam, seaweed or debris moving steadily seaward,

    ~ or a break in the incoming wave pattern.

Rip currents are often not readily or easily identifiable to the average person. If you are concerned about the possibilities of rip currents occurring in the surf, it is best to ask an on-duty lifeguard before entering the water.

If you are caught in a rip current, keep calm to conserve energy and think clearly. Don't fight against the current. Swim out of the current in a direction parallel to the shoreline. When out of the current, swim at an angle away from the current and toward the shore. If you are unable to swim out of the rip current, then just float or calmly tread water. When out of the current, swim toward shore. If you are unable to reach shore, wave your arms and yell for help.

If you see someone in trouble, call for help. Under no circumstances go in yourself to rescue them. Call out instructions from shore. Many people drown each summer while trying to save someone else from a rip current. Get help from a lifeguard if one is available. If not, have someone call 9-1-1. Throw the rip current victim something that floats such as a life jacket, cooler or inflatable ball.

It is important to note that rip currents can occur under any conditions. Know how to swim and to heed the advice of beach patrol before entering the surf. When areas of rip currents are marked with signs, respect the signage and avoid the area.

Don't Miss These Mardi Gras Happenings!

According to Wikipedia, Mardi Gras is also called Fat Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday. In English, it refers to carnival events and celebrations beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three King’s Day) and ends the day before Ash Wednesday. In France, Mardi Gras is a reflection of the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the fasting ritual of the Lenten season.

While each city in our country and abroad celebrate in their own special way, the most popular practices include parades where participants wear masks and costumes. We’re all familiar with the beads that New Orleans is well-known for handing out on behalf of the holiday.

 

On February 9, 2016, Dick’s Last Resort will hold their 24th annual Mardi Gras Parade around Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach beginning at 5 p.m. The parade starts at Greg Norman’s and winds around the waterway and parking lots to Dick’s Last Resort. Come out and enjoy the parade complete with floats, animals, beads and candy! There will be prizes given out for the best and worst floats as well as a crowning of the King and Queen. A musical performance by Pale Horse will take place. This family friend event wraps up at 11 p.m. 

Castano’s in Barefoot Landing will be holding a Mardi Gras Party from 5-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9 that is open to the public. Dress up and you could win a gift certificate at Castono’s for best costume. There will be live entertainment, prizes for the best costume, party favors, decorations, and free King’s Cake. Come for dinner and take advantage of the drink and food specials on behalf of the holiday.
