Swell from Beryl expected to create dangerous rip currents in Franklin County

As Beryl churns toward the southwestern Gulf of Mexico Friday, a long period of swell is expected along the Forgotten Coast. Dangerous rip currents are expected to develop Friday evening and last into the weekend.

The National Weather Service said, “if visiting the beach, please 

be familiar with the dangers of rip currents.”

 Remember, single red flags mean life threatening rip currents are likely in the surf zone. Double red flags mean the water is closed to the public.
