Red Flags are flying along Duck Beaches today, Wednesday, September 10. Lifeguards ask you to stay out of the water for safety reasons. Enjoy the beautiful day with walks along the beach or the soundside boardwalk. Also, check out the last family-friendly Scarborough Faire Days this afternoon in Duck.
RED FLAGS: Our beach utilizes a warning system — a large red flag flying indicates that the currents are strong and the water is unsafe for swimming. 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 the flags down. Conditions may change during the course of the day — pay attention! Also, if red flags are brought down, that does not mean the ocean is safe; there is always a risk when swimming or wading in open waters.
