The National Park Service reported that swells and water conditions in the area were rough. Then, on Sunday in New Jersey, multiple incidents were reported in Belmar. Five swimmers were said to be rescued by lifeguards and first responders. Another swimmer was taken to the hospital after being found unresponsive. The strong currents reported over the holiday weekend were likely a result of Hurricane Idalia, which made landfall on August 30. Many beaches along the Atlantic coast were closed to swimmers or had warning flags alerting beachgoers of the strong currents.
