    Considering that Rita is now a massive storm in the lower Gulf, how is the water looking today? Any new sand arriving on the beaches? What are the current flag conditions? Man I am full of questions... ;-)

    Main Risks From The High Surf Will Be An Extremely High Risk Of Rip Currents...
    Beach Erosion And Minor Coastal Flooding Around The Time Of High Tide. Beaches
    That Have Seen Erosion From Dennis And Katrina Earlier This Year Will Be
    Especially Vulnerable To Even More Minor Beach Erosion. Minor Coastal Flooding
    Will Be Possible Around The Time Of High Tide. The Following Are High Tides For
    Selected Locations Along The Florida Coast...

    Destin...1241 Am Cdt Thursday And 126 Am Cdt Friday.

    Residents Along The Coast And Visitors To The Beach Should Stay Out Of The

    The Water...you Could Be Putting Your Life At Risk Due To The Dangerous Surf
    Conditions.
