…HIGH SURF ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 5 AM TO 8 PM EDT
SUNDAY…
…COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM TO 8 PM
EDT SUNDAY…

The National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City has issued
a Beach Hazards Statement, which is in effect through Sunday
evening.

* LOCATIONS…Minor soundside flooding is expected adjacent to
the Pamlico Sound north of Cape Hatteras. Minor beach erosion,
dangerous rip currents and strong longshore currents will be a
threat along all area beaches.

* TIMING…For the High Surf Advisory, from 5 AM to 8 PM EDT
Sunday. For the Coastal Flood Advisory, from 10 AM to 8 PM EDT
Sunday. For the Beach Hazards Statement, through Sunday evening.

* SURF HEIGHT…Up to 4 to 6 feet north of Cape Hatteras and up to
6 to 8 feet south of Cape Hatteras.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS…Minor soundside flooding with inundation
of 1 to 2 feet above ground level will be possible adjacent to
the Pamlico Sound north of Cape Hatteras. This will affect low-
lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways resulting in a
low threat of property damage. Some roads and low lying property
including parking lots, parks, lawns, and homes adjacent to the
waterfront could experience shallow flooding.

* SHORELINE IMPACTS…Minor beach erosion, rough surf, dangerous
rip currents, and strong longshore currents.

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.

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.
