Police Stress Dangers of Swimming Amid Beach Hazard Statement | TMJ4 News

The National Weather Service issued a Beach Hazard Statement for large waves and dangerous rip currents expected along Lake Michigan. The advisory remains in effect until Wednesday afternoon.

Kenosha Police stressed the dangers of swimming during hazardous conditions and are urging local residents to stay out of the water.

Simmons Island Beach is listed as one of the most susceptible to dangerous swimming conditions, according to the NWS.

“Lake Michigan is unlike most inland lakes,” Kenosha Police Public Information Officer Lt. Leo Viola said. “It’s really a sea. It may look calm and inviting on the surface of the water, but there’s always rip currents and different things that play there and it’s always unpredictable.”
