Statement as of 8:25 PM EDT on April 23, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 24, 2017


... Beach hazards statement in effect from 8 am EDT Monday through
Monday evening...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a beach hazards statement, which is in effect from 8 am EDT
Monday through Monday evening.

* Hazards... high rip current risk and dangerous shore break.

* Location... all beaches but especially along east facing beaches

* timing and tides... the most likely time for life threatening rip
currents will be a couple hours either side of low tide. Low
tide Monday will occur around 1215 PM.

* Surf height... building to 4 to 6 feet in the afternoon.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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. 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.
