...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...
...COASTAL FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM EDT
MONDAY...
...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 2 PM EDT
WEDNESDAY...

* WHAT...For the Coastal Flood Warning, two to four feet of
  inundation above ground level in low-lying areas near shorelines
  and tidal waterways. For the High Surf Advisory, large breaking
  waves of 8 to 10 feet in the surf zone. For the Beach Hazards
  Statement, dangerous rip currents, large breaking waves, and
  strong longshore currents in the surf zone.

* WHERE...Hatteras Island and Northern Outer Banks.

* WHEN...For the Coastal Flood Warning, through Monday afternoon.
  For the High Surf Advisory, through Wednesday afternoon. For
  the Beach Hazards Statement, through Sunday evening.

* IMPACTS...Up to 2 to 4 feet of inundation above ground level is
  possible in some areas near shorelines and tidal waterways
  resulting in a significant threat to life and property. In some
  areas, battering waves will cause additional damage to property.
  Numerous ocean front roads will be impassable under several feet
  of water at times. Dangerous swimming and surfing conditions and
  localized beach erosion. Rip currents can sweep even the best
  swimmers away from shore into deeper water. Dangerous shore
  break can throw a swimmer or surfer head first into the bottom
  causing neck and back injuries. Strong longshore currents will
  create dangerous swimming conditions.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone property. If
travel is required, do not drive around barricades or through
water of unknown depth.

Inexperienced swimmers should remain out of the water due to
dangerous surf conditions.

Shore break occurs when waves break directly on the beach. 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.

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