North Carolina is one of the Northern states of The United State, America and very famous for its beauty forests as well as the wonderful beaches and islands. Going there for a great excursion is a very attractive idea. However, there are always several things you need to pay attention in order to have a safe journey like the dreadful ones which may harm or even kill you if you are not careful enough. Here are some of them you need to pay attention!
Going to beaches to swim in the summer time and get a tanned skin is a great idea and easy to make it become true. Yet, you should pay attention to choose carefully a safe beach and avoid the dangerous ones where there exist sharks and have the cases of shark attack which you can see in the newspaper every day.
Another kind of underwater animal which can kill you is the alligator, which can assail you when you swim in the rivers or the bays or in the water areas where the alligators live. It is very difficult for you to struggle against them if they intend to kill you because they are huge and strong and have a sharp set of teeth. Always be careful and take caution swimming in the rivers or in the bays near the coast.
North Carolina is the hometown of many powerful rivers and beautiful beaches. However, if you have the intention to have a trial of the strength with the high-risk sports, take caution when you and your friends want to have a journey in the rivers and be smart to choose which section of the rivers to go down. If not, you are easy to get risks of injuries, separation or drowning.
- Rip currents
Rip currents, which are the strong offshore flows of water, are always very terrifying. If you want to swim in the places which often have rip currents, please pay attention to how far you are swimming out and the rip tide flag for the day. The experienced swimmers will know the ways to keep safe when being trapped or swept by the rip currents but maybe you will not be able to because you are newer and do not have experience as well as cannot keep calm to solve the problems. Please, take care of yourself!
When you are in North Carolina, you should take notes with three types of rattlesnakes: the Timber, the Pigmy and the most dangerous America, the Eastern Diamondback. Fortunately, they are not naturally aggressive and most of the attacks happen accidently. Furthermore, there are also many kinds of snake in North Carolina which you should keep far away. Please remember to look carefully before you step in the forest in the early-mid spring.
- Small, deadly spiders
You can find both the brown recluse and black widow in North Carolina, but I am sure that you will not want to see them. Black widow can be found in the dark places like garages and attics but the brown recluse one is rarer. However, it is not unnecessary to check your shoes, old boxes or dark corners where they might be hiding. You should seek medical treatment immediately after being bitten because the anti-venoms of these spiders can lose their potency as the time passes.
In conclusion, although there are many dangerous things which can harm the people in North Carolina, the attractiveness of the beauty spots, the wonderful beaches, and the great islands as well as the power sports cannot be denied. The most important thing you need to do if you want to have a great journey here is paying attention to the dangerous things you have to avoid as well as ask natives for advice before you start your trip.
