Rough seas bulletin remains in effect

The Met Of­fice is main­tain­ing the rough seas bul­letin with a Yel­low Lev­el alert.

The Met Of­fice says that long-pe­ri­od north-east­er­ly swells gen­er­at­ed by Hur­ri­cane Loren­zo con­tin­ue to af­fect north­ern and shel­tered nearshore coastal ar­eas.

It says the ef­fects will be in the form of oc­ca­sion­al bat­ter­ing waves which can lead to lo­calised dis­rup­tion to sea bathing and oth­er nearshore coastal ac­tiv­i­ties.

Lo­calised beach ero­sion is al­so pos­si­ble.

The Met Of­fice says the ef­fects will be ex­ac­er­bat­ed at high tide, as spring tides are in ef­fect.

It is ad­vis­ing sea bathers, fish­er­men, and small craft op­er­a­tors to care­ful­ly mon­i­tor nearshore coastal sea con­di­tions and ex­er­cise cau­tion along af­fect­ed ar­eas.

“Be alert for dan­ger­ous break­ing waves and cur­rents. Fol­low the in­struc­tions of life­guards,” the bul­letin said.
