If you spend time around the water this time of year, you run the risk of getting your phone wet.

Experts say power your phone off immediately. Remove all skins, covers and face plates and dry off any excess water. If you have a flip phone, open it to let air get in.

Here is the hard part: leave it alone for a couple days. Then put the battery back on and attempt to turn it on.

If it works, you are probably in the clear. If a wet phone cannot be revived, your contacts might still be salvageable. Bring your wet phone into a cell phone store.

NC panel on offshore energy hears from public

WILMINGTON — A North Carolina panel exploring energy available off the state’s coast hears from the public about the choices ahead.

The Offshore Energy Exploration Study Committee meets on Tuesday in Wilmington. The panel created by the General Assembly earlier this year holds a public comment session on the University of North Carolina at Wilmington campus.

The committee’s interim report filed in May said there may be a significant amount of oil and gas deposits in federal waters under the Outer Continental Shelf off North Carolina.

The panel said North Carolina also could produce a significant part of its energy by harnessing offshore wind, especially north of Cape Hatteras.

The committee’s final recommendations are due next May.
