COASTAL HAZARD MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEWPORT/MOREHEAD CITY NC
510 AM EDT SUN SEP 21 2014

...ELEVATED THREAT OF RIP CURRENTS TODAY...

.INCREASED WINDS AND SEAS ASSOCIATED WITH LOW PRESSURE LIFTING
NORTH ALONG THE COAST WILL BRING A HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS...
DANGEROUS SHORE BREAK AND A STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENT ALONG THE
BEACHES NORTH OF CAPE LOOKOUT TODAY.

CARTERET-OUTER BANKS DARE-OUTER BANKS HYDE-
510 AM EDT SUN SEP 21 2014

...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS
EVENING...

* HAZARDS...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS...DANGEROUS SHORE BREAK AND
  A STRONG LONGSHORE CURRENT.

* LOCATION...ALONG THE BEACHES NORTH OF CAPE LOOKOUT.

* TIMING AND TIDES...THE MOST LIKELY TIME FOR DANGEROUS RIP
  CURRENTS WILL BE A FEW HOURS EITHER SIDE OF LOW TIDE...WHICH
  WILL OCCUR AROUND NOON TODAY. DANGEROUS SHORE BREAK WILL BE
  STRONGEST THIS MORNING NORTH OF CAPE HATTERAS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

RIP CURRENTS ARE POWERFUL CHANNELS OF WATER FLOWING QUICKLY AWAY
FROM SHORE...WHICH OCCUR MOST OFTEN AT LOW SPOTS OR BREAKS IN THE
SANDBAR AND IN THE VICINITY OF STRUCTURES SUCH AS GROINS...
JETTIES AND PIERS. HEED THE ADVICE OF LIFEGUARDS AND THE BEACH
PATROL. PAY ATTENTION TO FLAGS AND POSTED SIGNS POSTED NEAR BEACH
ACCESS POINTS AND LIFEGUARD STATIONS.

IF YOU BECOME CAUGHT IN A RIP CURRENT...DO NOT PANIC. REMAIN CALM
AND BEGIN TO SWIM PARALLEL TO SHORE. ONCE YOU ARE AWAY FROM THE
FORCE OF THE RIP CURRENT...BEGIN TO SWIM BACK TO THE BEACH. DO
NOT ATTEMPT TO SWIM DIRECTLY AGAINST A RIP CURRENT...SINCE IT CAN
EXHAUST AND EVEN KILL THE STRONGEST SWIMMER.

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.
