...beach hazards statement in effect until 8 pm edt this

the national weather service in newport/morehead city has issued
a beach hazards statement, which is in effect until 8 pm edt this

* hazards...a high threat of strong rip current and dangerous 
  shore break.

* location...beaches from cape lookout north.

* timing and tides...the most likely time for strong rip currents
  is a couple of hours either side of low tide, which will occur
  around 330 pm today.

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.
