Dangerous surf conditions have prompted a warning about swimming at South Shore beaches.

The warning issued by the Ministry of Public Works follows lifeguards at Horseshoe Bay raising the red flag at the beach earlier today. The flag indicates dangerous rip conditions and rough waves.

The Ministry urged the public to use “extreme caution” when swimming at any South Shore beach.

“Other South Shore beaches will be closely monitored by park rangers over the next several days and the public will be updated accordingly,” a Ministry spokeswoman said in a release this afternoon.
