MIAMI (AP) - Beware of rip currents when swimming in South Florida.

Though Hurricane Maria’s is well to the east, its winds are pushing water toward the east coast of Florida.

The Miami Herald reports that Larry Kelly, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Miami-Dade, said the risk is highest for Palm Beach. It’s a moderate risk for Miami-Dade and Broward.

The currents are expected to stick around at least through Thursday.

He said people who are visiting the beach shouldn’t swim or go past their knees. If people get caught in a rip current, swim parallel with the shore until they’re out of the current and can swim back to shore.
