RED FLAGS are flying today, Wednesday, September 20, in Duck. NO OCEAN SWIMMING! Currents are strong and the water is unsafe for swimming. Duck Surf Rescue requests that you DO NOT GO IN THE WATER- YOU PUT YOURSELF AND LIFEGUARDS AT RISK! Local safety officials determine when such conditions exist and also make the decision as to when to take flags down. Conditions may change during the course of the day- pay attention! Just because red flags are not posted does not mean the ocean is safe; there is always a risk when swimming or wading in open waters.
