Authorities in Broward County has identified the 15-year-old boy who died Monday after he was pulled under the surf in a Hollywood state park.
South Florida, still trying to dry out from days of drenching rain that caused severe flooding in parts of Miami-Dade County, not only had to contend with more rain Thursday but also whipping wind.
A Miami Beach woman who barely survived some deadly rip currents that claimed the life of a friend is speaking out, saying she wished she had checked the forecast more carefully and thanking the Miami Beach Fire Rescue divers who “risked their lives.”
Whipping winds along the coastline will create the potential for deadly rip currents at the beach over the next day or so.
There’s a water warning for South Florida beachgoers this long holiday weekend. Beachgoers are being urged to use extreme caution due to dangerous rip currents.
