Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:14 PM EDT Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk now in effect through Thursday evening...

* location... Pender... New Hanover... Brunswick... Horry... and
Georgetown County beaches.

* Rip current risk... high.

* Surf height... 2 to 4 ft at the Pender and New Hanover County
beaches... and 2 to 3 feet at the Brunswick... Horry and Georgetown
County beaches.

* Timing and tides... rip currents can be strongest a few of hours
either side of low tide. Low tide will occur between 200 and 300
PM on Thursday.

* Other hazards... weak to moderate north to south longshore current.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip currents
are likely in the surf zone.

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
signs.

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.
