CLEVELAND — The National Weather Service has issued a Beach Hazards Statement for lakeshore counties ahead of Memorial Day weekend.

The Beach Hazards Statement is now in effect through late Saturday night for Lakeshore Ashtabula, Cuyahoga and Lorain counties.

Strong winds and high waves will cause currents on the lakeshore. Swimmers should not enter the water as currents could carry swimmers away from the shore through a sand bar and along structure extending out into the lake.

The NWS advises swimmers to stay out of the water.
