impacts across the Outer Banks and downeast Carteret. Potential
impacts in this area include:
    - unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
    - A few large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
      uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where
      trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown
      over. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other
      elevated roadways.

Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is
anticipated.

* Flooding rain:
protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across the Outer Banks and downeast Carteret County. Potential
impacts include:
    - localized rainfall flooding may occur.
    - Minor flooding will be possible at places where rapid ponding of water
      occurs, such as at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
      areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
      near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief Road and bridge
      closures.

Elsewhere across eastern North Carolina, little to no impact is

* other preparedness information:
now is the time to bring to completion all preparations to protect

arrive. Also, if you encounter water covering the Road, seek an
alternate Route. Always obey official Road signs for closures and
detours.

If you are a visitor and still in the area, listen for the name of
the city or town in which you are staying within local news updates.

Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 4:22 PM EDT Aug. 30, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Wednesday
evening...

* hazards... high threat of rip currents and dangerous shore
break.

* Location... all beaches from Surf City to Duck.

* Timing and tides... the best chance for strong rip currents will
be a few hours either side of low tide... which occurs between
100 PM and 130 PM this afternoon. However... significant long
period swells will make conditions dangerous during at all
times.

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.

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.
