Another rip current warning issued for Park Point beaches
The Duluth Fire Department issued another red flag warning Wednesday morning for dangerous swimming conditions at Park Point beaches.
The fire department is asking everyone stay out of the water, regardless of swimming experience, until the warning expires at 10 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release.
The warning was issued due to the potential for the wind and wave conditions to cause life-threatening rip currents. The fire department had issued a previous warning Tuesday morning that expired Wednesday at 10 a.m.
There are currently no lifeguards at Park Point, and red flags are flying along the beach to indicate the dangerous swimming condition, the release stated. Flag locations include South Pier, 12th Street beach, Lafayette Square and the Park Point beach.
