There is still a chance that the storm could affect Bermuda or Atlantic Canada within the next week. And we're not completely out of the woods here in the United States, either. Regardless of the storm's ultimate path, high waves and rip currents are a serious threat along the East Coast as Jose moves by. Rip currents are silent killers. Many beachgoers don't realize there is one until it starts pulling them away from the shore. Pay heed to rip current warnings from local officials, and watch the ocean for signs of danger. Some clues to keep an eye out for: channels of choppy water, lines of foam or debris moving away from the beach, a break in the incoming wave pattern, and changes in water color beyond the surf (see photos here).
