The Duluth Fire Department has issued a Rip Current Warning for Park Point beaches effective through 10:00 AM Wednesday. Due to the high risk of rip currents, authorities say there are dangerous swimming conditions. The warning will continue until 10 AM Thursday.

A Rip Current Warning means that wind and wave conditions are conducive to deadly rip currents. Fire officials say everyone should stay out of the water, regardless of swimming experience.

There are currently no lifeguards at Park Point, and red flags are flying along the beach to indicate the dangerous swimming condition. Flag locations are: 12th St beach, Lafayette Square, and Park Point beach.
