Statement as of 3:06 AM EDT on April 24, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 24, 2017


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect from 8 am EDT this
morning through this evening...
... High surf advisory in effect from 5 PM this afternoon to 8 am
EDT Tuesday north of Cape Lookout...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a high surf advisory, which is in effect from 5 PM this afternoon
to 8 am EDT Tuesday.

* 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 today will occur around 1215 PM.

* Impacts... very rough surf will lead to beach erosion... dangerous
shore break and a high threat of rip currents.

* Surf height... building to 5 to 8 feet late today and peaking at
6 to 10 feet tonight.

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.

A high surf advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in
the advisory area, producing localized beach erosion and
dangerous swimming conditions.
