Virginia Beach posted to Twitter Wednesday that red flags were put in place at Sandbridge Beach as well as the Oceanfront.

Kill Devil Hills put yellow flags up, citing a moderate risk of rip currents. People are being cautioned not to swim near the yellow flags.

Talk the lifeguards at your beach about the surf conditions, and whether or not it is safe to swim.
