The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department has unveiled its latest effort to warn swimmers of the current Park Point rip current conditions.

An electric sign has been placed at the "S" curve of 12th Street and Minnesota Avenue on Park Point.

The sign is part of an ongoing water safety awareness expansion in the city of Duluth. The electronic sign informs beach goers of current surf conditions, how the surf impacts their safety, as well as the location of beaches where lifeguards are present. The sign was down for minor repairs and replaced by red, yellow and green flags to signal the water safety. The sign is operational as of Aug. 28.
