Caution for Beachgoers

Caution for Beachgoers Beachgoers at the New Jersey shore must be cautious over the Labor Day holiday weekend.

Hurricane Frances is churning up the surf even though the storm is bearing down on Florida.

The National Weather Service has issued an advisory warning about the high risk of rip currents along the entire New Jersey coast.

Coupled with five- to seven-foot waves, the conditions are hazardous for even experienced swimmers.

Lifeguards in some shore towns are only allowing knee- to waist-deep swimming and have banned boogie boards.

Swimmers who find themselves caught in rip currents should swim parallel to the shore until they're out of the current's grip. Then they should head directly to the beach.
