TUESDAY...

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a Coastal Flood Advisory, which is in effect from 1 AM to 8 PM
EDT Tuesday. A Beach Hazards Statement has also been issued. This
Beach Hazards Statement is in effect from 8 PM EDT this evening
through Tuesday evening.

* HAZARDS...Dangerous rip currents, minor coastal flooding and
  rough surf.

* LOCATIONS...Coastal Carteret and Onslow counties.

* TIDAL DEPARTURE...1 to 2 feet above ground.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Minor flooding will be possible,
  especially around times of high tide.

* SHORELINE IMPACTS...Rough surf, minor beach erosion and
  dangerous rip currents.

* SURF HEIGHT...6 to 9 feet.

* 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 10 AM Tuesday.

* TIMING...Tonight through Tuesday Night.

* IMPACTS...Minor beach erosion will be possible. Minor flooding
  for areas adjacent to water. A few roads could be impacted and
  flooded at times.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

A Coastal Flood Advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.

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.

&&

Time of high total tides are approximate to the nearest hour.
