Coastal Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:19 AM EDT Aug. 30, 2016 – National Weather Service

... High rip current risk remains in effect into this evening...

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

* Rip current risk... high.

* Surf height... 3 to 5 ft at the Pender and New Hanover County
beaches... 2 to 3 feet at the Brunswick County beaches... and 2 to
4 feet at the Horry and Georgetown County beaches.

* Timing and tides... rip currents can be strongest a couple of
hours either side of low tide. Low tide will occur between 1230
and 130 PM.

* 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.
