...beach hazards statement in effect until 8 pm edt this
the national weather service in newport/morehead city has issued
a beach hazards statement...which is in effect until 8 pm edt
this evening.
* hazards...high threat of rip currents.
* location...all beaches south of cape hatteras.
* timing and tides...the most likely time for strong rip currents
to occur is a few hours either side of low tide. low tide will
be around 330 pm edt this afternoon.
precautionary/preparedness actions...
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 and the beach patrol. pay
attention to flags and posted signs posted near beach access
points and lifeguard stations.
if you become caught in a rip current...do not panic. remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. once you are away from the
force of the rip current...begin to swim back to the beach. do not
attempt to swim directly against a rip current...since it can
exhaust and even kill the strongest swimmer.
