Warning of strong swells and rip currents in Florida

MIAMI.- The storm Lee, a category 3, moves slowly in ATLANTIC and even this is far from florida, Strong surges and rip currents tend to occur in Beaches in the Sunshine State.

According to the latest report of National Hurricane Center (NHC), Lee was located about 475 miles south-southwest of Bermuda and was moving northwest at 6 mph, with maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour.

According to the NHC, there are risks of strong winds and coastal flooding as rain increases in parts of New England and Atlantic Canada.

Although Lee is not expected to make landfall in Florida, its outer circulation is causing a storm surge along the state’s coasts that could intensify during the meteor’s passage to Bermuda.

Weather authorities said they expected “deterioration of coastal and navigational conditions” on Florida’s south coast. In Palm Beach resorts, some media outlets are already reporting an increase in wave size.

Rip currents, also known as rip currents, are water currents that flow in the opposite direction of coastal waves. These currents can be dangerous for swimmers and surfers, because they can drag them out to sea.

The NHC recommends Florida residents avoid beaches until the storm recedes. It is also important to pay attention to weather warnings and alerts. The NHC recommends Florida residents avoid beaches until the storm recedes. It is also important to pay attention to weather warnings and alerts.

Tips for staying safe at beaches during high surf:

  • Avoid beaches until the storm surge subsides.
  • If you’re at the beach, don’t swim.
  • If you see a water problem, call 911.

In the past week, Lee has recorded incredible strength in just 24 hours, from a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph to a dangerous Category 5 storm with winds of 165 mph.
