Hurricane Larry brings threat of dangerous rip currents

MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. – The National Weather Service is warning that swells from Hurricane Larry will create dangerous rip current conditions.

News outlets report that the storm isn’t expected to make landfall in the United States, but it will be powerful enough to be felt along the East Coast.

The weather service says Outer Banks beaches from Pea Island down to Cape Lookout will experience a high rip current risk.

That means powerful and numerous rip currents are expected and everyone should stay out of the water.

Moderate rip currents are expected from Duck through Nags Head and from Shackleford Banks through North Topsail Beach.

That means only experienced swimmers who know how to escape a rip current should enter the water
