Rip Current Risk Category
* Low Risk - A low risk of rip currents implies that wind and wave
  conditions are not expected to support the development of enhanced
  rip currents. However, rip currents are always possible, especially
  near jetties and other structures. Always have a flotation device
  with you in the water.
* Moderate Risk - A moderate risk of rip currents implies
  that individuals planning to enter the surf should  check with
  local beach patrols first. Be sure to swim within sight of a life
  guard, and never alone or at night. Always have a flotation device
  with you in the water.
* High Risk - A high risk of rip currents means dangerous and
  potentially life threatening conditions exist for all people
  entering the surf. People visiting the beaches should stay out of
  the high surf.
