Over 90 Beach Rescues Over The Weekend – whnt.com

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

93 people. 93 times where, if things had gone differently, a family could be mourning a death. All that in 2 days. Please, please dont become a statistic. People die from this every year. And its usually tourists, and its usually in nice weather. https://t.co/X8Frosctn8 https://t.co/xj51RVYhR9

This is the reason youve seen us talking about this a good bit in the leadup to spring break. Its dangerous, and its a pretty big deal.

While the rip current risk wont be as high this week, the threat is still elevated.
