Continued beach driving closure of North and South Beaches at Padre Island National Seashore

Corpus Christi, Texas- On the morning of June 22nd the National Park Service made the determination to continue the closure for at least another 24 hours.  Beaches were closed on June 21st to vehicle traffic due to high waters on the beaches associated with Tropical Storm Cindy.

The next assessment will occur on Friday morning (June 23rd). The national seashore is still open to the public, Bird Island Basin is still completely open and visitors are welcome to walk on the beaches (just no vehicle traffic). However there is still high chance of RIP CURRENT DANGER.  To learn more about the dangers of Rip Currents and how to survive if you are caught in one go to:
