Watches & Warnings

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:46 AM EDT Jul. 25, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

* hazards... high threat of rip currents and a strong longshore
current.

* Location... Cape Hatteras to Surf City.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip currents
to occur is a couple hours either side of low tide, which will
occur around 4 PM this afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Strong longshore currents can sweep swimmers and surfers into rip
currents, piers, jetties and other hazardous areas. In many cases
the longshore current is strong enough to prevent swimmers from
being able to keep their feet on the bottom making it difficult
to return to shore.
