Tropical Storm Debby Brings Rip Currents, Erosion to Cocoa Beach
COCOA BEACH, Florida — The last few days of pounding waves and winds as the result of Tropical Storm Debby are their toll on Brevard County beaches.
Visible erosion can been seen along the beach in south Cocoa Beach (pictured above) on Monday, June 25th. Very often, the erosion is just yards away from nearby sea turtle nests.
The strong southeast winds are creating dangerous rip currents all along Brevard County beaches. Red flags were flown at lifeguard stands and on the beaches near the Cocoa Pier. Tourists, unable to go into the water, make the most of their vacation by walking along the beach combing for seashells.
The normally popular beach at the end of Minuteman Causeway, next to Coconuts on the Beach, was nearly empty today.
