Coastal Flood Advisory, Coastal Hazard Statement, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 9:40 PM EDT on October 03, 2015

... High rip current risk remains in effect through Sunday evening...
... Coastal Flood Advisory remains in effect until 2 am EDT Sunday...

* location... all beaches of New Hanover... Pender... Brunswick...
Horry and Georgetown counties.

* Coastal flooding... minor coastal flood thresholds are expected
to be reached at the time of high tide... around 1 am.

* Beach erosion... minor beach erosion will occur with each high
tide through Sunday.

* Rip current risk... high. Life threatening rip currents are likely
in the surf zone.

* Surf height... around 6 feet.

* Timing and tides... low tide will occur around 7 am and 8 PM
Sunday. The strongest rip currents will occur on either side of
low tide.

* Other hazards... a moderate to strong longshore current is
expected at the Brunswick County beaches. In addition... hazardous
water conditions are expected at all beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you become caught in a rip current... Yell for help. Remain calm...
do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for help. If
you have to swim out of a rip current... swim parallel to shore and
back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to swim directly
against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

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... beach patrol flags and

A coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides will
combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast North Carolina and northeast South
Carolina... including the following in southeast ... North
Carolina... Bladen... coastal Brunswick... coastal New Hanover...
coastal Pender... Columbus... inland Brunswick... inland New
Hanover... inland Pender and Robeson. In northeast South
Carolina... coastal Georgetown... Darlington... Dillon...
Florence... inland Georgetown... Marion... Marlboro...
Williamsburg... coastal Horry and inland Horry.

* Through Monday evening.

* Historic and life-threatening flooding is expected across the
watch area. Road washouts and failures are expected. Streams and
rivers will continue to rise and will leave their banks to flood
nearby roads... property and structures. Many earthen dams will
overflow and/or fail completely. Evacuations may be needed in
the hardest hit and most flood prone areas.

* The heaviest rain will return Sunday and continue into Monday
afternoon. Any flooding that occurs Sunday night will be
particularly life threatening since flood dangers are harder to
recognize in the dark.

* Additional rainfall amounts will range from 3 to 5 inches over
much of southeast North Carolina with local amounts of 5 to 7
inches. Higher totals are expected over parts of northeast South
Carolina where 6 to 10 inches are possible. Locally higher
totals will be possible anywhere over small areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued. Never drive through any
flooded roadway... turn around don't drown. Travel is discouraged
Sunday night into Monday.
