Avoid Rip Current & Stay Within Rules at Corpus Christi Beaches this Labor Day

Celebrate Labor Day at the Beach but safely.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII 3NEWS) - Hundreds of people will enjoy our city beaches this Labor Day but make sure you are following the rules and avoiding the rip current.

Sarah Acosta was live for 3News First Edition on the beach giving us a preview of beach conditions today and how to stay safe and avoid the rip currents by following these simple rules from local city beach lifeguards:

1) Swim with a buddy
2) Keep it waist deep
3) Check flag conditions
4) Swim near lifeguard stands 
5) Use a flotation device if you are not a strong swimmer like a boogie board 
6) Avoid 2nd or 3rd sandbars if you are not an experienced swimmer
