CLEVELAND — The National Weather Service has issued a Beach Hazards Statement for counties along the lakeshore Monday.

The statement is in effect from 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. for Erie, Lorain and Cuyahoga counties.

Large waves could cause currents to develop on the lakeshore, making it dangerous for swimmers.

Swimmers are advised not to enter the water. The currents can carry swimmers away from the shore through a sand bar and along structures extending out into the lake.
