Danger at New Hampshire Beaches and it’s Not Just the Sharks
There are few absolutes in the world but one that holds true is never underestimate the power of Mother Nature. Going to the beach is a great way to relax and get in touch with nature but it’s important to respect the power of the ocean. According to wmur.com, they are warning the public to be aware of rip currents, especially in areas where there are no lifeguards to warn you.
According to wmur.com, there are no lifeguards at Seabrook this summer, so the town opted to post warning signs that list specific locations and emergency contacts. Other New Hampshire towns have reported shortages in lifeguard applicants as I shared in my blog just a few days ago. The danger from rip currents is severe. Towns are hoping to avoid tragedies like the Massachusetts couple that died last year after becoming trapped in a rip current. As always, be educated and never swim alone.
