Great Swells bring Great Danger

beach, waves, surf, NSB, flagler avenue The Volusia County Beach Patrol has issued a red flag warning, meaning  the water is hazardous and the public should exercise caution at the  beach.

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.”

For more information on beach conditions, call 386-239-SURF or download  the Volusia County beaches mobile phone app.
