Beach Hazard Statement

Statement as of 3:06 AM EDT on October 20, 2018

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on October 20, 2018


... Beach hazards statement remains in effect through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a beach
hazards statement, which is in effect through this evening.

Strong westerly winds around 10 to 15 knots, gusting to 20 knots,
will create a strong west to east longshore current at south facing
beaches in Brunswick County today.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Longshore currents can sweep swimmers and surfers into rip currents,
piers, jetties and other hazardous areas. Often, if the longshore
current is strong enough, it will sweep swimmers off their feet,
making it difficult to return to shore. Caution should be used when
in or near the water.
