It’s Good to Know: If You’re Caught in a Rip Current

Rip currents (or rip tides) are powerful currents that flow away from the beach. They can occur wherever there are breaking waves. If you are caught in a rip current, stay calm and don’t try to swim against it. Instead, swim parallel to the shore until you’re out of it. If you can’t do that, tread water until it dissipates.
