Far-away Hurricane Igor causes rip currents along Jersey Shore

JERSEY SHORE – Hurricane Igor continues to whip up waves and create rip currents along the Jersey shore even though it’s hundreds of miles away.

The National Weather Service today issued a high surf advisory all along the New Jersey coastline.

Forecasters say swells of 6 to 9 feet are possible and a few breakers could reach 10 feet.

The swells will continue to produce dangerous rip currents through this evening.

Swimmers are advised to use caution. Few beaches have lifeguards because summer ends on Thursday.
