DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. -- Beryl moved through Georgia toward South Carolina as a tropical depression Tuesday, but its impacts continued to plague the eastern coasts of Florida long after landfall near Jacksonville.
Authorities said the storm's remnants had the red flags flying along Flagler and Volusia County beaches because of surf stirred up over the Memorial Day weekend.
Things are not expected to calm, down any time soon, according to beach patrol officials.
Lifeguards reported a busy three days of pulling people from the turbulent surf.
Conditions are ripe for rip-currents, as the weather associated with Beryl brought strong winds along with the heavy surf.
In one case, an Orlando area teenager who went swimming with friends vanished in the rough surf Monday. His body was found, miles away, Tuesday.
Beach patrol officials say people heading to the beaches need to swim near a lifeguard.
In places where rip currents are present, they need to stay out of the surf and just enjoy the sun.
If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore until you're clear of it. Attempts to swim against those currents can tire out even the best swimmers.
