    check this sentence

    Does this sentence sound right?

    Because the tides continually move the sandbanks and dig gullies on the shore, what was a safe place yesterday, may not be one tomorrow.

    Re: check this sentence

    Remove the comma after yesterday and you're good to go.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    'Because the tides continually move the sandbanks and create gullies on the shore, what was a safe place yesterday may not be one tomorrow.' (Delete the comma after yesterday.)
