Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:56 AM EDT on August 16, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 16, 2017


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

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

* Location... along the beaches from Surf City to Duck.

* 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 830 am this morning.

* Surf height... 3 to 4 feet.

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.
