CLEVELAND — The National Weather Service has issued a Beach Hazards Statement for Erie, Lorain, Cuyahoga, Lake and Ashtabula Lakeshore counties.
The statement is in effect from 1:15 p.m Thursday to 4 a.m. on Friday due to a high risk of rip currents.
Gusty winds and waves can cause currents on the lakeshore. 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.
