Great Swells bring Great Danger
While Hurricane Sandy has moved out of the area, the expansive wind field associated with the storm will continue to produce windy conditions over the waters into mid-week, creating hazardous boating and beach conditions.
“The surf is still reaching the sea wall in many locations, and four-to six-foot waves are hitting our beaches,” said interim Beach Safety Director Marilyn Chandler Ford. “Safety is our number one priority and right now, the surf is life-threatening. Be cautious if you go into the water, and always swim in front of a lifeguard.”
