Beach Hazard Statement, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Flood Advisory
Issued: 9:38 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High surf advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT Tuesday...
... Coastal flood advisory remains in effect until 8 am EDT
Tuesday...
... Beach hazards statement in effect from 8 am EDT Tuesday
through Tuesday evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a beach hazards statement, which is in effect from 8 am EDT
Tuesday through Tuesday evening.

* Hazards... minor coastal flooding along the neause and Pamlico
rivers, high rip current risk and dangerous shore break.

* Location... rip currents and dangerous shore break will occur
along the beaches, especially along east facing beaches through
Tuesday. Minor coastal flooding will occur along the Neuse
River and adjacent tidal creeks tonight.

* Coastal flooding... water level rises up to 2 feet above normal
are possible for locations adjacent to the Neuse River
including adjacent tidal creeks tonight.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for life threatening rip
currents will be a couple hours either side of low tide. Low
tide Tuesday will occur around 115 PM.

* Coastal flood timing... mainly tonight.

* Impacts... very rough surf will lead to beach erosion...
dangerous shore break and a high threat of rip currents. Water
level rises of 1 to 2 feet producing minor flooding adjacent to
the Neuse River.

* Surf height... 5 to 7 feet Tuesday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current remain calm.
Don't fight the current. Swim in a direction following the
shoreline. When out of the current, swim back to shore. If tired,
float or tread water until out of the rip current. If unable to
escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.

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.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to produce minor flooding of low areas along the
Neuse River.
