The time for this radar exported to Google maps is around the time of the two other radar images found below – between 741 am and 758 am EDT. There is also an orange spot on the radar near Wilmington, which is not a nuclear power station.

…HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE SATURDAY NIGHT…

* Location…All Area Beaches.

* Rip Current Risk…High.

* Surf Height…Around 7 feet.

* Other Hazards…Strong longshore current.

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.
