Rip currents and heavy surf led to over 90 water rescues in Pensacola Beach over the weekend.

This is the reason you’ve seen us talking about this a good bit in the leadup to spring break. It’s dangerous, and it’s a pretty big deal.

These rip currents kill more people on our beaches than hurricanes, tornadoes, flash flooding, and lightning combined.

While the rip current risk won’t be as high this week, the threat is still elevated.
