Beach Hazards Statement issued September 15 at 5:07AM EDT until September 15 at 8:00PM EDT by NWS Newport/Morehead City NC Read More...
Description: ...DANGEROUS SHOREBREAK...STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENTS AND A HIGH THREAT OF RIP CURRENTS ARE EXPECTED NORTH OF CAPE HATTERAS SUNDAY... .The combination of an easterly and southeasterly swell will produce dangerous rip currents, shorebreak and longshore currents along area beaches today. * HAZARDS...High risk for dangerous rip currents, dangerous shorebreak and longshore currents. * LOCATIONS...The beaches north of Cape Hatteras. * TIMING AND TIDES...The most likely time for strong rip currents to develop will be a couple of hours before and after low tide, which will occur around 3 PM this afternoon. * SURF HEIGHT...Dangerous shore break of 3 to 5 feet.

Instruction: 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.

We’ve got a 6.7′ ENE swell @ 8.5 seconds this morning throwing some head+ high surf in Avon/Buxton. Conditions are mostly clean with light onshore winds in the 5-10 mph range this morning. Winds are expected to blow harder out of the ENE/NE later this morning topping out around 10-14mph which will cause the surf to get a little choppier with surface texture but overall, being the swell is head high, it should remain fun most of the day with PLENTY to ride. The swell will fade slightly throughout the day but should still remain over chest high by nightfall.

Tropical Storm Humberto (currently located over the ocean off of Central Florida’s coast) is expected to develop into a hurricane and head out to sea — WELL South of us. We will begin seeing consistent NE winds winds starting as early as Monday and continue through Thursday as it makes it’s way East, developing a brand new swell with well overhead predictions. Stay tuned as we monitor this new swell development.
