CLEVELAND — The National Weather Service has issued a Beach Hazards Statement for shoreline counties on Thursday.
The Beach Hazards Statement has been issued for Lorain, Lake, Erie and Cuyahoga counties until 4 p.m. Thursday.
Wind and wave action will cause currents on the lakeshore, so swimmers are advised to not enter the water.
The currents can carry swimmers away from the shore through a sand bat and along structures extending out into the lake.
Swimmers should remain out of the water to avoid hazardous swimming conditions.
