Beach Hazards Statement issued September 15 at 10:39AM 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...All Eastern North Carolina beaches. * TIMING AND TIDES...The most likely time for strong rip currents to develop are 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.

Semi-clean conditions early with winds finally starting to slack off enough to clean things up. The surf is still in the chest to head high range. It’s not super clean but definitely rideable and looks fun. Warm water temps in the low 70’s. Swell will fade slightly throughout the day but still be consistently in the chest/head high range. Wind predictions are calling for light to possibly moderate onshore winds later this afternoon. Low tide is 3:05pm. Looks like there will be plenty of surf today. Grab a board and hit your favorite sandbar. Thanks for checking in with us for your reports, forecast and cams.
