Caution Urged as Nova Scotians Head to the Beaches

first_imgAs Nova Scotians head to the beaches for relief from unseasonably high temperatures, provincial officials and the Lifesaving Society are urging caution in the water and around the shore. The tail end of Hurricane Danielle has created increased surf activity at a number of beaches across the province. With the possible arrival of Hurricane Earl, water conditions could become even more hazardous. “Understanding that people are seeking ways to escape the heat, I’m urging everyone to exercise extreme caution when in the water,” said Ramona Jennex, Minister of Emergency Management. “Rough surf attracts many water enthusiasts, but it also creates increased risk of injury or death.” With any storm, there is the potential for large waves, strong currents and dangerous surf conditions. People should consider the following advice from the Lifesaving Society: The Nova Scotia Lifeguard Service has extended supervision at three of the province’s busiest beaches. Supervision at Rainbow Haven Beach in Halifax Regional Municipality, Melmerby Beach in Pictou County and Mira Gut Beach in Cape Breton Regional Municipality has resumed from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Supervision at these three beaches is schedule to end tomorrow, Sept. 2. Nova Scotians are also reminded that Aylesford Lake Beach in Kings County, Lake Milo Boat Club in Yarmouth County and Lawrencetown Beach in the Halifax Regional Municipality will remain supervised until Monday, Sept. 6. Supervision at Lawrencetown Beach will reopen the weekends of Sept. 11 and 12, and Sept. 18 and 19. A number of indoor and outdoor pools are also open across the province and provide safe opportunities for relief from the heat. People should continue to listen to weather reports as Hurricane Earl moves closer to the province. Beaches and provincial parks may be ordered closed should weather conditions warrant. don’t overestimate your ability and stay within your depth parents should keep their children within arm’s reach on the beach and in the water do not consume alcohol on beaches swim with a partner in case you run into trouble never swim after darklast_img read more
