Also, a moderate longshore current is expected. * WHERE...Coastal Pender and Coastal New Hanover Counties. * WHEN...Through this evening. * IMPACTS...Rip currents can sweep even the best swimmers away from shore into deeper water. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...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. Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, yell for help. Relax and float. Don't swim against the current, as you will tire quickly. If you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to shore and back toward the beach when possible.
