...HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM EDT MONDAY
THROUGH MONDAY EVENING...

* Location...For the Pender, New Hanover, Horry and Georgetown
County beaches.

* Rip Current Risk...High.

* Surf Height...Around 7 feet at the Pender and New Hanover County
beaches, 4 to 5 feet at the Horry and Georgetown County beaches.

* Timing and Tides...Strong rip currents could occur at any time,
but will be especially prominent several hours either side of low
tide, which will be around 9 am.

* Other Hazards...Strong and rough surf. Significant beach erosion
possible.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
