RIP CUR­RENTS

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

Parks Canada has re­ported dan­ger­ous surf con­di­tions in Prince Ed­ward Is­land’s Na­tional Park over the last few days. Rip cur­rents may be formed along the shores due to high winds and re­sult­ing surf con­di­tions. The dan­ger is when swim­mers be­come trapped in the rapid cur­rent and are swept off­shore. Swim­mers are ad­vised not to panic if they get caught in a rip cur­rent, but to re­lax and swim par­al­lel to shore to get out of the cur­rent, then swim back to shore. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.parkscanada.ca/pei.
