Daytona Beach Rip Currents

Ripcurrents

It's important to know what to do if you are caught in a rip current while swimming in Daytona Beach or beyond. Each year there are around 100 people that die in rip currents in the country. Please review this image, provided by NOAA, so that you are aware of what to do if caught in a rip current. It's always safer to swim in front of a lifeguard, and be sure to pay attention to beach warning flags, so you know the conditions. If the waters are rough or the red flag is up it may not be safe enough to be in the water and you could be putting yourself at serious risk of being caught in a rip current. You can get additional information on rip currents at the NOAA website.
