High Risk of Rip Currents at the Jersey ShoreLast Edited:
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.
