...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM EDT FRIDAY THROUGH
FRIDAY EVENING...
...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT HAS EXPIRED...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a High Rip
Current Risk, which is in effect from 6 AM EDT Friday through
Friday evening.

* LOCATIONS...In South Carolina, Coastal Horry and Coastal
  Georgetown. In North Carolina, Coastal Pender and Coastal New
  Hanover.

* TIMING...From 6 AM EDT Friday through Friday evening.

* SURF ZONE IMPACTS...Very strong rip currents will be dangerous
  to anyone who enters the surf.

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.
