Beach Hazard Statement
Statement as of 4:03 AM EDT on May 03, 2015

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this
evening north of Cape Hatteras...

* hazards... high threat of rip currents and dangerous shorebreak.

* Location... beaches north of Cape Hatteras.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip
currents to occur is a few hours either side of low tide. Low
tide will be around 2 PM EDT Sunday.

* Surf height... 4 to 6 feet.

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.

Shore break occurs when waves break directly on the beach. The
most common injuries with strong shore break are neck and back
injuries... which most often occur when the powerful surf throws a
swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom. It is extremely
important to protect your head and neck whenever you are in
breaking waves by keeping your hands in front of you at all times.
