(ABC TEAM) – New warnings tonight about dangerous rip currents at beaches along parts of the East Coast – and the south.
At least seven people were killed in the past few weeks in North Carolina alone.
The latest victim, a 68-year-old man, was pulled from the ocean in the Outer Banks on Saturday.
Experts say if you do get caught in a rip current swim parallel to the shore, then once you’re out of the current, swim toward the shore at an angle away from the current.
