Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 2:57 PM EDT on August 29, 2016

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on August 31, 2016


... Beach hazards statement now in effect through Wednesday
evening...

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

If going to the shore or area beaches Tuesday or Wednesday... be
alert for dangerous rip currents and swim only in designated areas
patrolled by lifeguards.

Swells from tropical systems have arrived and should continue to
build Tuesday into Wednesday. The Breakers in the beach swimming
zone will likely be larger. This will increase the risk for
dangerous rip currents and can also knock swimmers and waders into
the sand.

Swim only in designated areas watched by lifeguards. Swimming
after the lifeguards go home and where lifeguards do not have you
in sight raises the risk of injury or death due to rip currents.

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.
