Carolina Beach Ocean Rescue Lifeguard Shawn Johnson looks out at the surf in Carolina Beach N.C., Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2019. More people die from surf zone incidents than any other single weather-related cause except flooding. Between 2014 and 2018, flooding killed 549 people. Currents, high surf and surprise waves killed 510, weather service records show. Nearly two-thirds of them were caught in rip currents.
