Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:01 AM EDT Aug. 23, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Beach hazards statement in effect from noon EDT today through
this evening...

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

* Locations... in South Carolina, coastal Horry and coastal
Georgetown. In North Carolina, coastal Pender and coastal New
Hanover.

* Timing... from noon EDT today through this evening.

* Surf zone impacts... strong south to north longshore current at
east facing beaches due to elevated south winds around 15 kts,
especially this afternoon and evening.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. Check with the
lifeguards before entering the ocean for possible hazards you may
be swept into.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Caution should be used when in or near the water. Check with the
lifeguards before entering the ocean for possible hazards you may
be swept into.
