Beryl produces rip currents off N.C. coast, could make for wet holiday weekend

Sub-tropical storm Beryl's presence off the southeastern U.S. coast could produce a lot of rain and create dangerous conditions for beachgoers:

"A three-day thunderstorm is what it's probably going to be," said Jay Wiggins, emergency management director for Glynn County, which is about 60 miles south of Savannah, Ga., and includes Brunswick and St. Simons Island. "Unfortunately, it's going to ruin a lot of Memorial Day plans."

Wiggins said he expects some flooded roadways and scattered power outages, perhaps some minor flooding in waterfront homes, but otherwise little damage. However, he urged beachgoers to beware of dangerous rip currents.
