Rip currents are the number one cause of weather related deaths in the Carolinas, according to the National Weather Service of Wilmington. 101 people have died as victims of rip currents since 2000.
A rip current is a current that can be 30 feet wide and a football field size in the length.
A rip current is caused when waves are breaking at different speeds. The wave speed increases in a path causing a current to develop and quickly move out into the ocean.
The national weather service combined with the lifeguards track wind speed and currents in order to map the path of developing rip currents.
