The warning means strong winds and wave conditions can create rip currents. Rip currents are life-threatening to anyone entering the water, no matter what your swimming capabilities are. Officials advise everyone to stay out of the water.

There are currently no lifeguards at Park Point, and red flags are flying along the beach to indicate the dangerous swimming condition.

Look for flags at the 12th St beach, Lafayette Square, and Park Point beach. Authorities will update the swimming conditions if they improve before this warning expires.
