Dangerous surf, high risk of rip currents for the Outer Banks again Thursday

Yellow flags are flying on some northern Outer Banks beaches today as a high risk for powerful rip currents, dangerous shore break and longshore currents continues.

Yellow flags are flying in Kill Devil Hills and Corolla, meaning beachgoers should only swim near a lifeguard and heed the advice of local beach patrol.

Nags Head, Kitty Hawk and other northern Outer Banks towns haven’t posted their flag decisions for the day.
