Rip Current Alert in Effect For Jersey Shore Beaches

A rip current alert has been issued for all Jersey Shore beaches due to Hurricane Cristobal.

Although the hurricane is several miles offshore, it will still produce high surf, large swells and rip currents at local beaches.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) states that the rip currents "will be life threatening to anyone who enters the surf."

The borough of Sea Bright issued a Nixle alert message on Aug. 27 that states that the rip current alert will remain in effect throughout the weekend. If people are going to swim, they must do so on guarded beaches only.

The rip tide has already claimed one victim after a 17-year-old Middlesex boy was pronounced dead on Aug. 28 after being reported missing the previous day. The boy was reportedly swimming at an unguarded Sandy Hook beach.
