No shark sightings allows Hempstead beachgoers to enter water ‘knee-to-waist deep’


After no sightings by the shark patrol this morning, beachgoers are permitted to go back into the waters “knee-to-waist deep” at Town of Hempstead beaches.

The town’s shark patrol said they spotted a significant number of cow-nosed rays in the waters, which are known to be a favorite feeding choice for sharks.

A total of 13 shark sightings since Monday have halted swimming at beaches on Long Island.

Two sightings were reported Saturday.
