A rip current advisory has been extended again for South Florida beaches.

The National Weather Service has extended the advisory through Wednesday evening for Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties because of windy weather conditions.

Miami Beach Ocean Rescue Lt. Dawson MacDonald said at least 43 people had to be rescued Monday and Tuesday because of rip currents.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue spokesman Timothy Heiser said 24 rescues have been made along Fort Lauderdale beaches since Friday.


Ocean conditions are expected to improve by the weekend.

Red flags along beaches warn swimmers about rough conditions. Anyone caught in a rip current should remain calm and swim parallel to shore until they can escape the current and swim back to the beach.
