Rip Currents

Record #:
Rip currents claimed thirteen lives at the Outer Banks during the summer of 1980. Nags Head responded to last summer’s problems by adopting an ordinance allowing officials to close the beach if rip tides threatened swimmers again. This article recognizes several heroes who saved swimmers’ lives last summer, and discusses how to recognize rip currents.
