SEASIDE HEIGHTS - Forecasters are predicting a high risk for rip currents along the Jersey Shore today.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist James Gregorio says wave heights of 4 to 6 feet are possible as Tropical Storm Leslie continues to churn the ocean.

Seaside Heights police closed the beaches early last night after two water rescues.

Authorities say two men were pulled from the surf after they got caught in a rip current. Hours later, two women managed to make it ashore after being pulled by another rip current.
