Surf circumstances stay harmful Saturday at Prince Edward Island Nationwide Park.
It is the second day in a row Parks Canada issued a warning of the potential for rip currents on the north shore. Rip currents are slender streams of water that transfer swiftly away from shore and make it tough for swimmers.
“Rip currents could also be fashioned alongside the shores as a result of excessive winds and ensuing surf circumstances,” Parks Canada’s advisory mentioned.
“To make sure the security of all seaside goers, coming into the water will not be advisable in these circumstances and persons are requested to comply with surf guard directions.”
