...DANGEROUS SURF CONDITIONS THROUGH SATURDAY...

.Strong southerly winds and large seas ahead of a strong cold
front will bring dangerous surf conditions to area beaches late
today into the weekend. Surf conditions will remain rough through
Saturday bringing a high risk of rip currents and large breaking
waves to area beaches. The surf height is expected to peak around
7 to 10 feet early Saturday morning, then gradually diminish
through the weekend. The large surf will also lead to beach
erosion and possible dune erosion and ocean overwash at
vulnerable locations, especially around the time of high tide.

...HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 PM EDT SATURDAY...
...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY
EVENING...

* HAZARDS...Beach and dune erosion with possible ocean overwash,
  a high risk of rip currents, dangerous shore break, and a
  strong longshore current.

* LOCATIONS...Eastern North Carolina Beaches from Oregon Inlet
  to Surf City.

* SURF HEIGHT...6 to 9 feet.

* IMPACTS...Conditions will be dangerous to life threatening for
  anyone entering the surf. Beach erosion will be likely with
  the potential for dune erosion and ocean overwash, especially
  around the time of high tide

* TIMING AND TIDES...The most likely time for strong rip
  currents to occur is a couple hours of low tide, which will
  occur around 230 PM Saturday.

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.

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.
