Coastal Flood Advisory


Coastal Hazard Message

Northern Outer Banks-
926 AM EDT Fri Oct 30 2020

...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 AM EDT
SATURDAY...
...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

* WHAT...For the Coastal Flood Advisory, up to one foot of
  inundation above ground level in low-lying areas near shorelines
  and tidal waterways. For the Beach Hazards Statement, dangerous
  rip currents, large breaking waves, and strong longshore
  currents in the surf zone.

* WHERE...Northern Outer Banks.

* WHEN...For the Coastal Flood Advisory, until 2 AM EDT
  Saturday. For the Beach Hazards Statement, until 8 PM EDT this
  evening.

* IMPACTS...Flooding of lots, parks, and roads with only isolated
  road closures expected.  Rip currents can sweep even the best
  swimmers away from shore into deeper water. Dangerous shore
  break can throw a swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom
  causing neck and back injuries. Strong longshore currents will
  create dangerous swimming conditions.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If travel is required, allow extra time as some roads may be
closed. Do not drive around barricades or through water of
unknown depth. Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone
property.

Swim near a lifeguard. 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. 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.

...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 AM EDT
SATURDAY...
...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

* WHAT...For the Coastal Flood Advisory, up to one foot of
  inundation above ground level in low-lying areas near shorelines
  and tidal waterways. For the Beach Hazards Statement, dangerous
  rip currents, large breaking waves, and strong longshore
  currents in the surf zone.

* WHERE...Northern Outer Banks.

* WHEN...For the Coastal Flood Advisory, until 2 AM EDT
  Saturday. For the Beach Hazards Statement, until 8 PM EDT this
  evening.

* IMPACTS...Flooding of lots, parks, and roads with only isolated
  road closures expected.  Rip currents can sweep even the best
  swimmers away from shore into deeper water. Dangerous shore
  break can throw a swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom
  causing neck and back injuries. Strong longshore currents will
  create dangerous swimming conditions.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If travel is required, allow extra time as some roads may be
closed. Do not drive around barricades or through water of
unknown depth. Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone
property.

Swim near a lifeguard. 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. 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.
