403 pm edt sat sep 23 2017

...beach hazards statement now in effect through sunday evening...
...high surf advisory in effect from 6 am sunday to 8 pm edt
monday...

the national weather service in newport/morehead city has issued
a high surf advisory, which is in effect from 6 am sunday to 8 pm
edt monday.

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

* location...all beaches.

* 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 5 pm sunday.

* impacts...powerful waves and rip currents which could result in
  injuries to anyone who enters the surf.

* other hazards...beach erosion and ocean over-wash especially
  during each high tide through monday.

* surf height...5 to 8 feet.

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.

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