Swimmers warned of rip currents along Jersey shore

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - September 18, 2010

The National Weather Service says swells kicked up by the storm were expected to build as the weekend progressed, and they could continue through Monday.

Swimming has not been banned at any New Jersey beaches, but yellow flags have been posted at many sites to warn swimmers about the conditions.

Officials warn that swimmers should only be in areas where lifeguards are stationed and should not swim alone - even if waters don't appear to be risky - because the tides and currents can change quickly and unexpectedly.

Forecasters say Igor will likely pass over Bermuda or nearby by late Sunday or early Monday.
