TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The rip current risk remains high along the coast in parts of New York and New Jersey as Hurricane Crisobal whips up waves.
The National Weather Service says long period swells associated with Cristobal will continue to churn the ocean into Thursday evening.
A high surf advisory is also in effect until 2 a.m. Friday for beaches in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island.
As CBS 2’s Tracee Carrasco reported, some people were worried that their Labor Day weekend plans would be a wash.
“It would put a damper on my day tomorrow if I couldn’t get to swim in the ocean,” Judy Woods said.
