Rip Currents and Speed Limits

A drive through North Beach and Harvey Cedars today revealed the 45mph speed limit. Nice addition to the early blinking traffic lights this year! It will help everyone get to Beach Haven for Chowderfest Weekend. But be careful, the south end has reduced speed limits and working traffic lights, as in the greens and reds are active!

Hopefully everyone is safe if any have been in the ocean. Hurricane Maria marched up the coast and sent very large swells to the entire eastern seaboard. Surf City has the rip current warnings up along w/no swimming. As of this posting there will still be a danger over the weekend as the swell train slowly recedes.

Here’s a few photos of the large surf being ridden here on LBI from the Hurricane Maria swells.
