Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 4:29 AM EDT on August 29, 2015

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 29, 2015


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening...

* hazards... high risk of rip currents.

* Location... along the beaches north of Cape Lookout.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip currents
is a few hours either side of low tide... which occurs around 1
PM this afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins...
jetties and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach
patrol. Pay attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach
access points and lifeguard stations.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do
not attempt to swim directly against a rip current... since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.
