OUTER BANKS, N.C. (WAVY) — Beach officials are flying “No Swimming” red flags in Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills Saturday.

The red flags went up due to the high threat of rip currents. This means swimming in the Atlantic Ocean is prohibited until dangerous conditions subside and the red flags are lowered.
