Rip current risk level high along Park Point
The National Weather Service says swimmers should avoid swimming along the Park Point and Wisconsin Point beaches Thursday.
A Beach Hazards statement is in effect until 9 p.m.
High waves and strong rip currents are expected, which can make dangerous and difficult swimming conditions.
Rip currents often form at low spots in sandbars, near shoreline structures such as peninsulas or breakwalls, and near river mouths.
