Hurricane Gert Kicks Up Rip Currents Along Jersey Shore

High risk for rip currents along New Jersey shore

Hurricane Gert is churning the surf and creating a high risk for rip currents along the New Jersey shore.

Beachgoers are advised to swim near lifeguards.

If caught in a rip current, they should relax and float. If possible, swim parallel to the shore in order to get free of the current.
