Swimming Restrictions Lifted
- Contact Dare County Public Relations
As of 10:30 a.m. today, Tuesday, September 18, swimming restrictions along Dare County beaches are no longer in effect. The restrictions were put in place September 10 with the state of emergency as a result of dangerous surf conditions and strong rip currents due to Hurricane Florence.
Before heading to the beach, beach goers are advised to check beach condition reports from the National Weather Service at https://www.weather.gov/beach/mhx. Never swim alone. If in doubt, don’t go out. If red flags are flying, swimming is prohibited, for your safety and the safety of ocean rescue staff. Although flags may be posted on sunny warm days with blue skies, it means the water conditions are not safe to swim in.
