Beach Hazard Statement
Issued: 5:21 AM EDT Oct. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

... 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 northwest winds 20 to 25 mph will become north today. This
combined with increasing north to south wind waves will result in a
moderate to strong north to south longshore current by this afternoon.

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.
