The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of eastern North Carolina, including the following
areas, Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Jones, Mainland Dare,
Mainland Hyde, Onslow, Outer Banks Dare, Outer Banks Hyde,
Pamlico, Tyrrell, and Washington.

* Through Tuesday evening

should flash flood warnings be issued.




Beach Hazard Statement

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on July 23, 2018
Statement as of 4:49 am EDT on July 23, 2018

... Beach hazards statement remains in effect from 8 am EDT this
morning through this evening...

* hazards... dangerous rip currents, strong shore break and
strong longshore current.

* Locations... beaches from Duck to Surf City.

* Timing and tides... the most likely time for strong rip currents
to occur is a couple hours either side of low tide, which will
occur around 11 am.

* Surf height... 4 to 6 feet.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
