... High rip current risk in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a high rip
current risk... which is in effect through this evening.


A high risk of rip currents will exist for all area beaches of
northeast South Carolina and southeast North Carolina today.
A high risk for rip currents means that wind and or wave
conditions support particularly dangerous rip currents.
Rip currents are life threatening to anyone entering the surf.

A strong northeasterly wind and swell... and a near full
moon... will combine to provide enough energy for strong rip
currents to form along all area beaches. In addition... there will
be a strong north to south longshore current at all easterly facing
beaches today. The best time for rip currents will be an hour or
two either side of low tide... which will occur around 3 PM this
afternoon.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore... which occur most often at low spots or breaks in The
Sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins... jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs.

If you become caught in a rip current... do not panic. Remain calm
and begin to swim parallel to shore. Once you are away from the
force of the rip current... begin to swim back to the beach. Do not
attempt to swim directly against a rip current. Even a strong
swimmer can become exhausted quickly.
