funny, the link says the risk is low. ill note that the link also said the risk was low the day that the two people died. not sure who is asleep at the wheel here, but lives are at stake. i suggest someone actually check the links and make sure that the correct risk level is being represented. this has the potential for legal action if someone dies and the alerts are not up to date or being represented accurately.

Nobody said the risk was low. The National Weather Service issued a warning that conditions pose a "moderate risk of dangerous currents." And I completely agree with you, DJ, that lives are at stake here -- which is why we put this out for everyone to take note of.
