NWS issues rip current warning for Jersey Shore

SEASIDE HEIGHTS - The National Weather Service has issued a warning to New Jersey residents of a high risk of rip currents at the Jersey Shore tonight.

Police say there have already been a lot of water rescues today. Three people were rescued in Seaside Heights, where the rip current has become so bad that officials have closed the beach to swimming.

There were also several water rescues in Cape May County.

Police are reminding potential beachgoers that there are no more lifeguards on duty along the shore. Officials say waves could reach five feet in some areas as the day goes on.
