BELMAR - As Hurricane Danielle passes by Bermuda, the storm?s effects are being felt a 1,000 miles away on the New Jersey shoreline.

The storm?s intensity is causing riptides across the beaches. While some surfers are braving the waves, many are staying out of the water.

So far lifeguards have said that the riptides aren?t severe and thus they haven?t issued a riptide warning, but they do say that warnings are likely for Sunday.

Lifeguard supervisor Phil Karatz is urging people to swim near a lifeguard and to use caution once the guards go off duty.
