Sheriff Golden warns swimmers of the dangers of riptides

Labor Day weekend is projected to be beautiful. However, Jersey Shore beaches have been experiencing dangerous riptides recently.  This trend is expected to continue through the weekend.

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden recorded this video earlier this summer with Chief Lifeguard Tim  Harmon of Sea Girt to warn of the dangers of riptides and how to avoid a tragedy in the ocean.

    Please use the correct terminology: *ripTIDES* only occur during ebb tide when water is pulled back to sea through a confined water space such as a bay or lagoon. Strong currents that form along beaches (regardless of the lunar tide cycle) are *ripCURRENTS.*

    This is semantic, but words matter.
