With the rain we're expecting I doubt that many people will be choosing swimming as their past time today, but just in case I feel I should pass this important info along from the Duluth Fire Department.  They have issued a dangerous swimming conditions warning until 10a on Friday.  Please be sure to share this with family and friends if you are not home and they are planning a jaunt to the beach today through tomorrow morning at 10am.

Their concern is that the wind and wave conditions can support rip currents. Rip currents are life-threatening to anyone entering the water, even the most experienced swimmer could be effected. They are saying that everyone should stay out of the water regardless of your swimming experience.

At this time, there are no lifeguards at Park Point.  You will notice red flags flying along the beach to indicate that swimming condition are dangerous.   Flags are also locations at: 12th St beach and Lafayette Square. You will be notified if swimming conditions improve before this warning expires.

Flag locations are: 12th St beach, Lafayette Square, and Park Point beach.  More information on conditions and rip currents can be found by visiting the Park Point Beach website.
