The town also has enacted a State of Emergency.
Black flag conditions have been posted for one beach on the Crystal Coast.
The town of Pine Knoll Shores says that means the surf is unsafe to enter for swimmers or surfers.
Kramer says the rip currents due to Hurricane Irene are bringing about these warning and they're asking people to stay out of the surf during black flag conditions.
The town manager says because of the dangerous conditions, rescue personnel will not be able to deploy equipment into the water in rough black flag conditions.
