Beach Hazards Statement


COASTAL HAZARD MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEWPORT/MOREHEAD CITY NC
433 AM EDT TUE SEP 23 2014

...DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AND STRONG NORTH TO SOUTH LONG SHORE
CURRENT TODAY FOR THE OUTER BANKS...

.CONTINUING LONG PERIOD SWELLS FROM THE SOUTHEAST AND WAVE
HEIGHTS AROUND 4 FEET WILL PRODUCE A CONTINUING THREAT FOR STRONG
RIP CURRENTS TODAY ACROSS THE OUTER BANKS. IN
ADDITION...INCREASING NORTH TO NORTHEAST WINDS WILL PRODUCE A
STRONG NORTH TO SOUTH LONG SHORE CURRENT TODAY.

...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS
EVENING...

* HAZARDS...STRONG RIP CURRENTS AND NORTH TO SOUTH LONG SHORE
  CURRENT.

* LOCATION...NORTH OF CAPE LOOKOUT.

* TIMING AND TIDES...THE MOST LIKELY TIME FOR STRONG RIP
  CURRENTS TO DEVELOP ARE A COUPLE HOURS EITHER SIDE OF LOW
  TIDE...WHICH WILL OCCUR AROUND 2 PM 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.

STRONG LONG SHORE CURRENTS CAN SWEEP SWIMMERS AND SURFERS INTO RIP
CURRENTS...PIERS...JETTIES AND OTHER HAZARDOUS AREAS. IN MANY
CASES THE LONG SHORE CURRENT IS STRONG ENOUGH TO PREVENT SWIMMERS
FROM BEING ABLE TO KEEP THEIR FEET ON THE BOTTOM MAKING IT
DIFFICULT TO RETURN TO SHORE.
