...BEACH HAZARDS STATEMENT IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM EDT THURSDAY
THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING...
...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM EDT THURSDAY THROUGH
THURSDAY EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a Beach
Hazards Statement, which is in effect from 8 AM EDT Thursday
through Thursday evening. A High Rip Current Risk has also been
issued. This High Rip Current Risk is in effect from 8 AM EDT
Thursday through Thursday evening.

* LOCATIONS...In South Carolina, Coastal Horry and Coastal 
Georgetown. In North Carolina, Coastal Pender and Coastal New 
Hanover.

* TIMING...From 8 AM EDT Thursday through Thursday evening.

* SURF ZONE IMPACTS...Very strong rip currents will be dangerous
to anyone who enters the surf. Additionally, northeasterly winds
of 15-20 mph will produce a strong north to south longshore
current at all beaches in the area. 

A Beach Hazards Statement is issued when threats such as rip
currents, longshore currents, and other hazards create life-
threatening conditions in the surf zone. Caution should be used
when in or near the water.

There is a high risk of rip currents. Life threatening rip
currents are likely in the surf zone.

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, beach patrol flags and
signs.

If you become caught in a rip current, yell for help. Remain
calm, do not exhaust yourself and stay afloat while waiting for
help. If you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to
shore and back toward the beach when possible. Do not attempt to
swim directly against a rip current as you will tire quickly.
