Red Flag conditions in Myrtle Beach

Red flags are flying on the sand in Myrtle Beach due to rough surf conditions, said police Capt. David Knipes.

A red flag is up from Second Avenue South to the southern end of the city limits meaning lifeguards will not allow swimming in the ocean. It is not known when the red flags will be lifted.

The National Weather Service in Wilmington, N.C. issued a hazardous weather outlook for the coastline from Georgetown County into North Carolina. Southwest winds 15 to 20 knots with gusts up to 25 knots are expected with seas 4 to 5 feet Tuesday. Similar conditions are likely Wednesday afternoon. Rip currents are possible.
