This is just a warning to all you locals and Disneyland tourists out there who may be planning a trip to the beach this week.
The Orange County Register is reporting that a storm that began in Tahiti will generate powerful waves and dangerous rip tides at Orange County's beaches from Thursday through Saturday, posing hazards to swimmers, some surfers, boaters, and people who fish from local jetties.
The weather will be beautiful of course. But I advise not going in the water if at all possible.
If you do swim and get caught in a rip tide, let the current take you out past the breaking waves and swim parallel to the shore until the current is no longer pushing you out. Sometimes you can see rip tides which are characterized by patches of sandy brown, choppy waters. If you see this especially do not go into the water.
Just thought I'd let you all know.
