Hurricane Chris to Bring Big Surf to the East Coast

Hurricane Chris is not projected to make landfall with the East Coast, but will instead greatly impact the swells and riptides for the region. NOAA

The Carolinas are expecting their first hurricane of the season and, with it, several days of high surf and riptides. Already gusting over 60 mph, tropical storm Chris is meandering off the Carolina coastline but is projected to become a hurricane as it progresses farther from land and into the Atlantic ocean. As it moves, its effects will be felt by not just the Carolinas, but the entire mid-Atlantic coastline.

While increased swells might appear to be tantalizing surf, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) strongly warns against the temptation. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions," the NHC stated in a public advisory

In fact, increased swells have already claimed the life of 60-year-old man who drowned from the rough surf, according to the Weather Channel. Beach visitors have been warned to expect heightened danger through Thursday; by then the storm will have reached Nova Scotia and Canada.
