CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) -

Labor Day is rapidly approaching, which means thousands of people will be hitting the beach for the last major holiday weekend of the summer.

According to a press release from Town Manager Michael Cramer, Freeman Park has experienced higher than normal tides over the year. As a result, some parts of the park have become impassable.

Carolina Beach officials are sending a warning to prevent visitors from getting stranded on the sand.

Before a major problem happens, town leaders are taking the opportunity now to caution visitors to avoid the problem areas during high tide in order to prevent damage to property and potential personal injury caused by rising water.

The table of tides listed for this weekend is listed below. All visitors should be aware that
flooding may occur two hours prior and up to two hours after the listed high tides.

  • Friday: High tide at 10:14 a.m. and 10:18 p.m.
  • Saturday: High tide at 10:53 a.m. and 10:57 p.m.
  • Sunday: High tide at 11:39 a.m. and 11:43 p.m.
  • Monday: High tide at 12:34 p.m. and 12:40 a.m.

As a safety precaution the town will actively watch the effects of the tides on the beach and
may close sections of the beach to camping and travel.
