... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Tuesday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of eastern North Carolina, including the following
areas, Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Duplin, Greene, Jones,
Lenoir, Onslow, Pamlico, and Pitt.

* Through Tuesday morning

* rain showers will continue into early Tuesday morning. The rain
may be heavy at times with occasional thunderstorms. The
episodes of heavy rain will lead to a potential for flash
flooding. Storm total rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is expected,
with locally higher amounts up to 5 inches possible.

* Flash flooding is especially dangerous at night as it is very
difficult to see the depth of water on roads.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.





Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 3:42 PM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this
evening...

* hazards... high rip current risk and dangerous shore break.

* Location... all beaches but especially along east facing
beaches.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for life threatening
rip currents will be a couple hours either side of low tide.
Low tide today will occur around 1215 PM.

* Surf height... building to 4 to 7 feet late today and tonight.

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.
