Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 6:05 AM EDT Aug. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect through Tuesday evening...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a beach
hazards statement... which is in effect through Tuesday evening.

Vacationers and locals alike should be alert for dangerous rip
currents and swim only in designated areas patrolled by our
lifeguards.

Swimming after the lifeguards go home, and where lifeguards do not
have you in sight, raises the risk of an uncontrolled and unexpected
struggle in the water.

Swells from tropical cyclone Gaston have arrived and will probably
build another foot late today, and then possibly reach 4 feet,
Tuesday into Wednesday. The Breakers in the beach swimming zone
will likely be larger.

These swells not only enhance the potential for dangerous rip
currents but can also knock swimmers and waders flat into the
sand, causing injury.

Swim only in designated areas watched by the beach patrols. This
will help ensure greatest safety in what probably will be a long
stretch of fairly rough conditions on Atlantic Ocean exposed beaches.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A beach hazards statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents... longshore currents... sneaker waves and other hazards
create life-threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution
should be used when in or near the water.
