346 AM EDT Mon Sep 16 2019

...DANGEROUS SHOREBREAK...STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENTS AND A HIGH
THREAT OF RIP CURRENTS ARE EXPECTED ALONG AREA BEACHES MONDAY...

.The combination of easterly and southeasterly swell will produce
dangerous rip currents, shorebreak, and strong longshore currents
along area beaches on Monday. These conditions are expected to
continue through the middle of the week.

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

* HAZARDS...High risk for dangerous rip currents, dangerous
  shorebreak, and strong longshore currents.

* LOCATIONS...All eastern North Carolina beaches.

* TIMING AND TIDES...The most likely time for strong rip
  currents to develop are a couple of hours before and after low
  tide, which will occur around 330 PM Monday afternoon.

* SURF HEIGHT...Dangerous shore break of 3 to 5 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.

Strong longshore currents can sweep swimmers and surfers into rip
currents, piers, jetties and other hazardous areas. In many cases
the longshore current is strong enough to prevent swimmers from
being able to keep their feet on the bottom making it difficult
to return to shore.
