Reality Check: Rip current warning signs in Fort Morgan
FORT MORGAN, Ala. (WPMI) —
After months of pressure following the death of a teenage vacationer in Fort Morgan a system is finally in place there to warn beach goers of unsafe water conditions.
Double signs warning of rip current dangers are now posted at each public beach access point.
The county has no jurisdiction over the beaches, but still made the decision to purchase more than 100 signs that cost around $10,000.
Four different flashing signs will also be installed next week heading to Fort Morgan to alert drivers of the beach conditions.
