High Risk of Rip Currents at the Jersey Shore

Last Edited:
NEW JERSEY -

There are currently warnings along the Jersey shore of a high risk of rip currents.

The moderate to high risk is due to a strong hurricane that while remaining out to sea will have a strong impact along the shore.

Lifeguards are reminding people to swim in between the flags on protected beaches and to never swim alone.

If you do get caught in a rip current, experts say to stay calm and swim parallel to the shore to escape the current.
