High surf warning goes into effect this afternoon for Antigua and Barbuda until tomorrow morning
Moderate long-period swells are reaching the area and causing very hazardous conditions mainly along northern and north-facing coastlines. The threat level to the life, livelihood, property and infrastructure of those using the affected coastlines is high, with the potential for extensive impacts. These swells are expected to cause life-threatening surfs and rip currents for affected coastlines. A high surf warning means that dangerous battering surfs of over 3 metres or over 10 feet will affect some coastlines in the warning area, producing very hazardous conditions.
No one should enter the waters of the main warning areas. All are also urged to stay away from rocky and or coastal structures along affected coastlines.
ABMS Met Office at 462-3017, if confirmation of this message is needed.
