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.
