Strong rip currents expected over the weekend

APRIL 2, 2015

The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) has said that strong rip currents are expected over the Easter Weekend due to the full moon, and has issued a warning to all beach goers and bathers across South Africa.

“Spring tide brings a higher than normal high tide, a lower than normal low tide and with it stronger than normal rip currents,” NSRI spokesman, Craig Lambinon, said in a statement.

The NSRI has asked beach goers to be especially cautious during this time and to swim only where there lifeguards are present and is designated safe areas.
