Coastal Flood Advisory, Beach Driving Alert, High Rip Current Danger at Padre Island National Seashore

Corpus Christi, Texas- Despite Tropical Storm Cindy being far to the East, the beaches of Padre Island National Seashore are being affected by extreme high tides (gulf waters are up to the dune line and waves are very rough)!

SOUTH AND NORTH BEACHES ARE CLOSED TO DRIVING.
The National Park Service has closed North and South Beach to vehicle traffic due to high waters on the beaches. Park rangers will monitor conditions and the public will be notified when the beaches are reopened to driving. We expect the closure to be for at least the next 24 hours. 

RIP CURRENT DANGER, swimming is not advised at this time due to the high possibility of being pulled away from shore by a rip current. To learn more about the dangers of Rip Currents and how to survive if you are caught in one go to:

About the National Park Service: More than 20,000 National Park Service employees care for America's 417 national parks and work with communities across the nation to help preserve local history and create close-to-home recreational opportunities.
