Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in sandbars. Rip currents can sweep you into deeper water. 

Even if it feels warm outside, the lake can still be cold with fast moving currents. Conditions could be life-threatening. Do not overestimate your swimming abilities. If you see someone in distress, call 911 immediately.
