Day in the life: what goes into beach patrol when the rip curren – FOX10 News | WALA

A tropical disturbance heading toward the coast of Texas is having an impact on beaches in Alabama, causing a high risk of rip currents.

Between 15 and 20 rescues were made over the weekend according to beach safety officials. One beachgoer who frequents Orange Beach said he was concerned about the number of kids venturing out into the water on Monday.

“It scares me to sit back here and watch some of these children that are not being very closely because I know how quickly it can happen,” Steve Ponder, a vacationer from Munford, AL, said.
